Practice using have been / has been
Try to use contractions!!

What have you been doing lately? Tell me about any new activity in your life. Have you been watching a new show? Reading a new book? Doing a new exercise? When have you been doing it? How many days a week? What time of the day?

Ex: For about a month, I have been reading a new book. Actually, I'm almost finished. It is Isaac Asimov's Foundation. I've been reading it at night before bed. I've even been staying up too late reading because I don't want to stop! It's really interesting.

    How about me? 한달 동안, 새로운 책을 읽고 있어요. 사실이, 거의 다 읽었어요. 그 책은 isaac asimov's Foundation. 밤에 자기 전에 읽어요. 너무 많이 읽어서 너무 늦게 자요! 진짜 흥미로웠다 My Spanish is not even good enough to try 😞

    Since September, I've been learning English. Actually I don't give up. I've been learning it at night after my work day. I've even been staying up too late learning it because I want to speak to further foreigners. The difference of hours is sometimes huge. I enjoy speaking this new language with kind and patient people.

    @Marie Good job! Thanks for being brave! I want to speak to further foreigners ----> I want to speak with more foreigners / I want to speak to foreigners more Do you get many opportunities to speak to foreigners where you live?

    I’ve been reading a book for the past 5 days. It’s called Diary of a Wimpy Kid that has been very successful in the US. Actually, I’ve read only a few pages after I got one. I found it so fascinating. I’ve been speaking with my friends about the story. It is really worth reading.

    I got interested in crochet these days. Actually I’ve made many kinds of things, for example, a tea coaster, flower wreath, and animal stuff. It’s very fun for me to do crochet. I have to make these after work at night. I guess I’ve spent for about 2 hours a day. I can’t wait to make another one.

    Hi Tomas. First of all thank you for your topic. Really interesting. Anyway this is my idea about using "have/has been". I have been studying English for 3 years but actually I don't feel enough confident, yet. And this is a bit demoralizing. Anyway I'm a really determined guy so I'm going to keep on. Have a good day Tomas

    For about one year and half, I’ve been working on my M.s.c thesis. I’ve been doing hard work, writing and making graphics about Reservoir oil field. I’m almost finished whole chapters. I’m editing the chapter nowadays. and I’ve been writing a research to publish it. I’m kinda excited because it’s my first time to publish a research. I also I’ve been working with an American author for writing an article with him.
