Present Perfect Progressive
The present perfect progressive
is used to describe an ongoing action
that may or may not be finished.
The present perfect progressive is formed
using "have/has been" + the present participle
(ing). For example:

We have been waiting for twenty minutes.
For example:

Fred has been studying a lot lately.

This tells us that Fred is probably
preparing for exams.

In this case, the action is important.
It's also used to say how long a
continuous action has been in progress.

For example:

It`s been raining for four days!
Finally, it describes a progressive action the
result of which is important.

For example:

Mary has been having trouble sleeping lately.
That's why she looks so tired.
A few examples:
I've been trying to figure
out this math problem for
a half an hour.
Carla has been playing
soccer all her life.
Marie-Michelle has been traveling around Asia.
How long have you been
living here?
She hasn`t been feeling
What have you been doing?
We've been learning the
present perfect progressive.
