    Past simple/ Present perfect continuous

    Hello!

    I want to know if there's any difference between: "She lived in London for two years" and "She has been living in London for two years."

    Thank you!

    Re: Past simple/ Present perfect continuous

    Yes, there is a difference. With the first sentence ("She lived in London for two years") you are saying she is no longer living in London. With the second sentence ("She has been living in London for two years") you are saying she is currently living in London.
