PAST PERFECT CONTINUOUS

Past Perfect Continuous Timeline

For example:

“By the time I left England we had been living in Bristol for five years.”

“Her back was sore because she had been sitting at the computer all day.”

It is also used to say how long something went on for, up to a time in the past.

For example:-

We apologized because we had kept them waiting for 3 hours.

We apologized because we had kept them waiting since lunchtime.

!Note It is always for a length of time and since a point in time.
