i have a question about grammer
i want to write a sentence about past, something has been done in the past for a long time ,and it has completed in the past either.now how can i express it? to show the continous progress!
If you mean something started in the past and has continued up until now, that's called the Present Perfect Continuous.
- She has been working at that company for three years
- They have been waiting for an hour
If you mean something started in the past and continued up until another time in the past, that's called the Past Perfect Continuous
- They had been talking for over an hour before she arrived
- How long had you been waiting to get on the bus?
