How to form the present perfect
Start with the subject: I, you, she/he/it, we, they
Use have or has (she/he/it has)
Add the word 'been'
Write down the verb in the -ing form (walk - walking, eat - eating, write - writing)

I have been writing for two hours./She has been walking all day.

Slide 8 - Tekstslide

Watch out!
Sometimes the spelling changes.
If the word ends in -e (write, release etc.) you remove the e in the -ing form. Write -> writing, release - > releasing.
