✳️ HAVE vs. HAVE BEEN ✳️

1) HAVE

- Used in the present perfect tense, which means that the action has been completed in the past. 

☑️ I have visited Canada
(I was in Canada sometime in the past.)

- It may also be used to describe an action that began in the past but there is no indication whether the action has stopped or continues in the present. 

☑️ I have lived in this house for 10 years
(In the past I lived in this house; Not known whether I'm still or stopped living there)

❇️The best way to recognize the present perfect tense is to see if the second verb ends in “ed” (like visited).❇️

2) HAVE BEEN

- Used in the present perfect continuous tense, which conveys an action that began in the past and is still continuing in the present. 

☑️ I have been living in this house for the past 10 years
(The person moved into this house 10 years ago and still lives there )

❇️In the present perfect continuous tense, the verb after “been” ends in “ing” such as “living”.❇️
