    confused grammar

    1.Is it correct to say:

    He has been traveling to Europe for five times.

    He has traveled to Europe five time.

    As I know both of them correct but my teacher has said that when you have mentioned number of doing or staying you should use present perfect only.


    2.If I say:

    My friend is meeting me tomorrow.

    My friend is going to meet me tomorrow.

    Which one is more accurate?

    Your teacher is correct about these examples

    My friend is meeting me tomorrow.
    My friend is going to meet me tomorrow.
    Both sentences are possible.

    That's fine if you started watching the film three minutes ago and have watched it continuously up to the point where you say the sentence.
