    controversy

    Hi, teachers, I saw the following sentence and be confused with the usage of "there has been", "There has been considerable controversy over the designs for the football stadium", is it correct?

    Yes, it's correct. Why did you think it might be wrong? Did you think it should be, "There is considerable.."?
