    door was open since so long...

    Suppose my mom left the door open and she comes bake I want to say that the door was open. how do i say it?

    1) The door has been opened since too long.

    2) The door was opened for very long.

    please tell me the more practical way to say this . So that i can use it on daily basis.

    Do you mean that the oven door was left open?

    'The door has been open for a long time (and I was too lazy to get up and close it).'

    No, open, not opened.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
