How To Use Your Present Perfect Continuous/Progressive Forms

This is made by using the present term of the auxiliary verb have plus past participle of the verb to be (been) plus the -ing form of the verb.


Positive/Affirmative:               subject + aux. verb + been + verb + ing

Negative:                                 subject + aux. verb + not + been + verb + ing

Question:                                 aux. verb + subject + been + verb + ing

  • Auxiliary verb = have/has
  • Past participle of verb “to be” = been

Example: It has been raining.

Now, let’s study some example situations for better understanding.

  • You are out of breath. Have you been running? (Meaning: you are out of breath now)
  • Paul is very tired. He has been working all day. (Meaning: he is tired now)
  • Why are your clothes so dirty? What have you been doing?
  • I have been talking to Amanda about the problem and she agrees with me.
  • Where have you been? I have been looking for you everywhere.
  • John has not been sleeping well lately.
