Present Perfect Continuous Tense VS Past Perfect Continuous Tense ( English Grammar Lesson)
Present perfect continuous is used to speak about an action that started in the past and is still on in the present. The action is not completed.
Example I have been working at ABC for 5 years. (I started working 5 years ago, and I am still working currently)
Example I am angry. I have been waiting for you for two hours. (from 2 pm-4 pm I have been waiting)
Example It has been raining since last night. (last night, it started raining at 10 pm and it is still raining this morning)
Past perfect continuous to show that something started in the past and continued until another time in the past. The action is not on in the present.
Example I had been working at ABC for 5 years. (I started working in 2009 and resigned in Dec’14. Now, I am not working at ABC company. So, we use the past perfect continuous)
Example I was angry. I had been waiting for John for two hours. (yesterday, the action of waiting was on for 2 hours)
Example The road was wet. It had been raining for many hours yesterday. (yesterday, the action of raining started and went on for a couple of hours and then stopped. It is not raining in the present)
