      Does this category count as past perfect continuous or present perfect continuous? By definition, its more the latter, no?

      To be honest, I always get this grammar point mixed up with Present Perfect! Is there a good way to tell the difference between them?

    3. Charles April 6, 2021

      You can tell the difference between the "past perfect continuous" and "present perfect continuous" with the tense of the auxiliary verb have.

      had= past perfect continuous
      have= present perfect continuous

      However, I just discovered that the present perfect continuous tag is not in the tag list.

      Maybe all of these should be under present/past perfect tense category instead of the continuous/progressive?
