I don't understand the difference between: I've worked and I've been working here since 2001
What's the difference between:I've worked here since 2001 and I've been working here since 2001. or: I've lived here and I've been living here or: I've lived here for 10 years and I've been living here for 10 years. Thank you.
Basically, there isn't a difference in meaning. Both mean that you've worked here since 2001 and that you are still working here.
I have worked here since 2001 - present perfect
I have been working here since 2001 - present perfect progressive
The latter seems to put a bit more emphasis on the length of time than the former.
The same can be said for your second set of sentences.
