Present Perfect Continuos with...pictures!
Present Perfect Continuos can also be practiced with pictures taken from old magazines. The teacher should choose those ones showing people in action (reading a newspaper, talking on the phone, etc) and then label each of them in a way the students have to make the sentences by themselves. So for example: a picture of someone watching TV. The label could be: WATCH TV / TWO HOURS and the student is supposed to say "She has been watching TV for two hours". Variations are possible. You can ask your students, for example, "Has she been watching TV for three hours?" and elicit from them the answer "No, she hasn't. She has been watching TV for two hours." If you work with groups, a good idea is to divide them in pairs or in small groups so that they can keep practicing with the pictures. How long have I been working with pictures? I've been working with pictures for a long time and I simply love it!
