Have been has been inhabiting these forms caused a lot of confusion for many people well in this video I will clear up that confusion I'm going to teach you the three main uses of these forms and how to use them correctly without making mistakes as always there is a quiz at the end of the video to test your understanding alright let's get started Music before we talk about the uses you need to know the basics of where to use have has unhappy in the present if the subject of a sentence is i you we they or a plural noun then we use have me if the subject is he she it or a singular noun then we use has been this is when we talk about the present when we talk only about the past it's very easy for any subject we use had be okay let me test you what do we use with he/she/it or a singular noun in the present we use has been what about with i you we they or plural nouns we use have been and in the past tense we use had been for all subjects good so let's now talk about the first use of these forms this is in the present perfect tense that is to talk about actions or situations that started in the past and are still continuing here's an example i have been working as a teacher for seven years in speech we usually shorten i have to i i've been working as a teacher for seven years let's look at a timeline for this you know that i started working as a teacher seven years ago or in 2010 because at the time of filming this video right now it's 2017 and i'm still a teacher so this action working is continuing in the Suttons we can also say i have been working as a teacher since 2010 the difference between four and sins is that if you want to mention the duration or the amount of time than you use for like four seven years if you want to mention the starting point of the action or situation use since as in since 2010 here's another example let's say that this lady wants to see the doctor her appointment was at three o'clock she came to the hospital at 3:00 but the doctor wasn't there so she started waiting at three o'clock and she still waiting let's say it's five o'clock now so two hours have passed so what can we say we can say she has been waiting for two hours or she has been waiting since 3 o'clock in natural speech we say he's been and she's been she's been waiting ok have a look at this sentence he's been the CEO of the company for four months or we can say since June because that's when he started here we don't have an ING verb like working or waiting that's because we don't want to focus on any action we just want to express the situation that he became the CEO in June and he's still the CEO here's another example they've been married for 25 years or since 1992 when did they get married in 1992 are they still married now yes so they've been married for 25 years now okay so what about had B well let's change our sentences a little bit I had been working as a teacher for seven years when I quit my job ah we see a different meaning here it means that I started working as a teacher at some point in the past I was a teacher for seven years but then I quit so now I am no longer a teacher I want you to notice that there are two past actions here one continuous action I had been working as a teacher and a single finished action at the end of that I quit compare this to the previous sentence I have been working as a teacher here there is only one continuous action and it's still continuing it's not finished so please remember this rule only use had been if there were two events in the past a continuing action or a situation and a single finished action at the end so let's go back to the other sentences with these we can say she had been waiting for two hours when the doctor finally arrived he had been the CEO of the company for only four months when it went bankrupt went bankrupt means the company lost all its money and closed down they had been married for 25 years when they divorced so are they still married unfortunately no just like the sentences with have been and has been are in the present perfect tense the sentences with had been are in the past perfect tense now if you need stop the video and make sure you understand the difference between have been has been and had been and then play the video again and continue okay let's now move on to the second use of these forms this is in the passive voice to talk about recent actions now I recently needed to buy some computer parts so I went to amazon.com and I bought a mouse and a keyboard after I received the items I got an email from Amazon it had this line your items have been delivered what does that mean well it means the same thing as we have delivered your items we means Amazon this sentence is called an active voice sentence and here the focus is on we but Amazon wants to focus on the items because that's what's important in this situation so instead they use the passive voice your items have been delivered this means that the items were delivered just now maybe a few minutes or hours ago now when I receive the
