Present Perfect Continuous Say Yes Bluff

Instructions:

Choose one of the phrases below and use it to ask your partner a present yes/ no question, e.g. “Are you learning another language at the moment?” They must reply “Yes” to that question, and then you can ask four more questions to work out whether “Yes” is a true answer or not. The first of your four questions must start with “How long have you…?” (to practice Present Perfect Simple and Continuous), and then the other three questions can be any questions you like, e.g. “Which language are you learning?”, “Why did you choose that language?” and “How much has your level improved in that time?”
