    Re: "Has been" usage

    This should help you with understanding the Present perfect simple(all about the verb forms of the Present perfect simple).

    Make sure to have a look into this (when to use the Present perfect simple) as well.

    For a short introduction to the Present perfect continuous (when to use it) have a look both there.

    hope this helps.

    hi teachers,

    which is correct

    since there was some problem
    since there has been some problem

    I am looking for the example of "has been " usage for past activities.
