    Have been and are been - diffrence

    Hi All,

    I am new to this forum, need some help on this. Also new learner to English, please guide

    If I have to write a person about a confirmation of room bookings via email.

    Sender: I need two rooms to be booked on my name, please confirm the bookings.

    Should I reply?
    1. Your bookings are been done.

    2. Your bookings have been done.

    Regards,

    Nadeem

    Hello, nadeem.
    Welcome to UsingEnglish.com.

    How about:
    "Your request for a booking/bookings has been confirmed."

    Your "are been" version is not grammatical, and please note that it's 'difference'.
    I hope my response will be of some assistance to you.

    Thank you for the suggestion, this will surely help.

    It will also be helpful if could throw more light on the sentences I had referred to.

    Hello, again.

    The word you should use in your sentences is 'confirmed'. I don't think 'done' would work in them.
    As I said in post #2, "are been" is not grammatical:

    Your request is confirmed. (Present Simple)
    Your request is being confirmed. (Present Continuous/Progressive)
    Your request has been confirmed. (Present Perfect)

    I hope this post will shed some light on your query.
