The present perfect is used to refer to actions that began in the past and continue in the present. In Spanish it is equivalent in most of its uses to the past perfect in Spanish: I have eaten, you have eaten, he has eaten, etc.

The "present perfect" of any verb is made up of two elements: the appropriate form of the auxiliary verb to have (in the present) and the "past participle" of the main verb. The "past participle" form of a regular verb is root + ed, e.g. played, arrived, looked.

The "present continuous" of any verb is made up of two parts: the present of the verb to be + the "present participle" of the main verb. talking.

The "present continuous" is used:

to describe an action that is taking place right now: You are using the Internet. ... to describe a trend or action that is currently happening: Are you still working for the same company?
