      Itakumbukwa kuwa,kila lugha ina tenses (nyakati ambazo zinaelezwa na verbs za lugha husika) sio kila tense tutakayokuwa tukieleza hapa kwa kuitolea mifano ya kuifananishia na tenses itakuwa na sifa sawa na ya Lugha ya Kiingereza
           
Past perfect continuous imejengwa na maneno mawili -past perfect ya verb to be (Na hii ni neno "had been") ikifuatiwa na  present participle ya verb husika (Yaani Verb+ing). Tunapoongelea verb husika ni kuwa, tunaongelea kuhusu kitendo kilichomuelekea (Subject) yaani mtajwa/ mtendaji katika sentensi hiyo

             Kazi ya past perfect progressive (past perfect continue) tense
     Past perfect continuous huafikiana  na present perfect progressive, lakini katika kurejea wakati huko nyuma kidogo kuliko, yaani wakati kabla ya sasa.

  Tense hii hutumika kuelezea kitu au kitendo kilichoanza kufanyika wakati uliopita na bado kikawa kinaendelea au ndio kimekwisha sio muda mrefu. Pia tunapokuwa na shauku ya kujua kuhusu wakati huo ulivyokuwa unaendelea.

Mifano:

    Je, umekuwa ukinisubiri kitambo kabla ya simu kuita?  hapa Msemaji ana shauku ya kutaka kujua kilichokuwa kinaendelea katika wakati huo uliopita kidogo kabla ya wakati huo anapoongelea. Tazama mifano zaidi,

a. Had you been waiting long before the telephone call?
b. They had been having lunch before the guest arrival.
c. His head had been aching severely for several hours and he got sleep.
d. Their friends had been trying to rescue them when the building that they were inside got crashed.

e. Oh! I had been longing to meet you.

 Hali hii hutumika vile vile katika reported speech. Ni sawa na ile ya past progressive na present perfect progressive katika direct speech:

  Abdul Maalik said "I have been surfing wind all afternoon."  Abdul Maalik said he had been surfing wind all afternoon.

     When Hilal asked by the judge whether he was by the time his computer stolen, he said "I was reading newspaper in my bedroom." 

When the judge questioned him, Hilal told  he had been reading news paper in his bedroom.

  Wakati mwingine, tense hii huweza kutumiwa katika vitendo vinavyojirudia rudia, mfano

Nimejaribu kufungua mlango mara sita kabla hujaja, lakini nimeshindwa.

"I had tried to open the door six time before you have arrived, but I failed." unaweza ukaiandika kama hivi

"I had been trying to open the door six time before you arrived, but I failed."

  Nakutakia kila la kheri na uendelee na masomo yetu mengine;
