    Present Perfect: I have gone there many times.
    Present Perfect Continuous: I have been going there for a long time.

    Here are a few tense examples:

    Simple Present: I go to English several times a year.
    Simple Past: I went there last year.
    Simple Future: I am going there next year. I will go there next year.
    Present Continuous: I am going there now.
    Past Continuous: I was going there when my car broke down.
    Future Continuous: I will be going there every week.

    Past Perfect: I had lived there for a year before I came here.
    Future Perfect: I will have lived here for a year in January.
