If you worried about Brexit, don’t be… as Dan the Man says everything will be FINE! 😅 He tells us why as we speak all things BREXIT but there is some SERIOUS RnR vocab in the process – just keeeeeep on ROCKin’ people! 👊
The RnR vocab that you will learn in today’s show:
In today’s show, I said:
“I’ll look after you Dan, I’ve been doing it for 30 years now”
That is some SERIOUS Present Perfect Continuous there! Remember, we use this for when the action STARTS in the PAST and is STILL IN PROGRESS!
BUT…. there are times when we can use the Present Perfect Simple and Present Perfect Continuous, ESPECIALLY for the verbs LIVE and WORK.
I’ve lived here for 5 years -> I’ve been living here for 5 years
BOTH are correct!
It’s a RARE case that we can use both though, the GENERAL difference is that we use the Present Perfect SIMPLE for QUANTITIES (like “I’ve been to London 5 times”) and we use Present Perfect Continuous for TIME (like “I’ve been studying English for 5 years”) – BOOM! 👊
