    correctness of one sentence

    Dear teachers!

    Would it be possible to use both present perfect and present perfect continuous in this sentence?


    Since that time, Ive been greeting/ Ive greeted her every time I saw her.


    Thank you very much!

    Re: correctness of one sentence

    Both are possible. I'd end with every time I've seen her.

    Dominik, please note that a better title would have been I've been greeting/I've greeted her.
