    Which one is correct?

    - Which one of these sentences is correct? I have doubt about where to put the subject...

    1) What will you be looking for this time tomorrow?
    2) What will be you looking for this time tomorrow?

    - what differences of meaning are there in these two sentences?

    1) I have been living in Lodon for two months.
    2) I have lived in London for two months.

    Do they both mean the same thing? or the first one means that I still live in London so I'm supposed to pronouce this sentence if I live in London and the second one means that I lived in London for a particular period of my life without saying when? And in this second case, should it be right to use the simple past instead of present perfect simple such as : I lived in London for two months.

    Thanks so much for your answers!

    - what differences of meaning are there in these two sentences?

    1) I have been living in Lodon for two months,( and I feel homesick.)
    2) I have lived in London for two months, (and I know the city quite well.)

    Both are correct. The first one lays stress on the duration of the action, the second - on the result.
