    Re: "present perfect continuous vs past perfect continuous"

    I have been working - present perfect continuous
    I had been working - past perfect continuous

    The present perfect continuous connects the situation in some way to the present.
    The past perfect continuous connects the sitatuion in some way to a past point in time.
