Present Perfect tense
Dear All ,
I was wondering If you could possibly help me with your comments for the following sentence ; whether we could use the Present Perfect Continous tense with Day names .
" I have been studying English for three years on Tuesday . "
" I have been studying English for three years on Tuesdays. "
The first sentence indicates that Tuesday will be the thrid anniversary of when you started studying English, but it is awkward.
On Tuesday, it will be three years that I have been studying English.
The second sentence indicates that you have been doing this only on Tuesdays, and have been doing it for three years. It is also awkward.
I have been studying English on Tuesdays for three years.
