Transcript of Present Perfect Simple vs Present Perfect Continuous

PRESENT PERFECT SIMPLE We use it to show that an action is now completed.
e.g. I've finished a new picture. Do you want to see it, mum? We use it to stress the finished result
of a completed activity.
e.g. Jack has painted the walls yellow. PRESENT PERFECT CONTINUOUS We use it to stress the amount we have completed.
e.g. Sally has written five emails this morning. We use it to talk about actions that have just
stopped and may have an effect in the present.
e.g. I'm exhausted because I've been jogging
in the park. We use it to focus on how long an activity
has been in progress.
e.g. Mike has been reading this book for two weeks. We use it to talk about actions that started in the past and continue in the present.
e.g. I've been teaching English for years. have
+ past participle
has have
+ been + -ing
