    Talking Present Perfect Continuous

    Hello!

    Which is correct?:

    -Ive been waiting long enough. (I think this one is not correct but I can't really say why!).

    -I've waited long enough.


    -He's been learning how to play the guitar since he was 12.

    -He's learnt how to play the guitar since he was 12. (I like this one better!)

    -He's been playing the guitar since he was 12.

    -He's played the guitar since he was 12. (I like this one better!)

    What do you think?

    Thanks a lot.

    Re: Present Perfect Continuous

    They're all correct, though the ones you 'like better' are the least natural or colloquial and should be avoided.
