The Difference Between the 3 phrases “have been” ‘had been” and “has been” – Learn English Grammar Subconsciously


Many of us sometimes feel confused with verb tenses. We feel unsure on how to apply it in various situations, especially, in conversation.

 Here, we will learn:

  • have been
  • has been
  • had been


Let’s remember that “have been” is paired with plural pronouns such as “we, they, you …” And singular pronouns, “he, she, it” when we use “has been.”


Most of the time, we use “had been” to tell something about the past. But in this video, we will learn more tips on how to use the phrase.


We might think that it’s not really enjoyable to learn grammar. But isn’t rewarding when we master it and don’t have to think whether what we are saying is right or wrong? So, let’s learn English in fun, easy and natural way to be a proficient English speaker!
