20 Examples of Present Perfect Continuous Tense! The present perfect continuous tense is one of the most important tenses in English. It is used to talk about actions or events that started in the past and are still happening in the present.

The present perfect continuous tense is made up of two parts: the present perfect tense of the verb ‘to be’ (I have been, you have been, he/she/it has been) and the present participle of the main verb (running, working, living).

For example:

  1. I have been running.
  2. You have been working.

The present perfect continuous tense is often used with time expressions such as ‘for’ and ‘since’. For example:
