how are you?
Well, my biggest doubt at the moment is the difference between these two tenses. Actually, the more I study the more I have doubts with these tenses.
These similar threads helped me to clarify and reiterate my previous understanding.
I'm not posting in these threads because the site suggests avoiding asking for clarification (I don't know why because it would avoid new threads with the same content).
My main doubt is as follows:
I've lived in New York for two years.
In my understanding, the sentence above implies (1) that I lived in NY for two years and now I live in another place; or (2) I'm moving to another city after two years living in NY; or (3) I lived in NY for two years, then I moved to another place for some period and, finally, I'm returning. Is that correct?
I've been living in New York for two years.
Whereas the sentence above, in my understanding, implies that I lived in NY for two years and I still living there.
Anyway, many sources that I've already read say that these two sentences have the same meaning and are interchangeable. Therein lies my question. Is that correct? Because if these two sentences are interchangeable, it destroys all my understanding.
Thanks in advance.
