Present Perfect Simple VS Present Perfect Continuous.

Post by elieltr » Tue Apr 14, 2020 2:53 pm

One of the uses of "Present Perfect Simple" is to talk about "continuing situation".
And one of the uses of "Present Perfect Continuous" is to talk about "past action still-continuing".
What is the difference between them and how can I know when to use each ?
In both, they start in the past and continue in the present.
Thank you. {-:
