    The past perfect continuous tense is a verb tense that is used to talk about an ongoing action or event that happened in the past before another past action or event. It is formed by using the auxiliary verb “had” followed by “been” and the present participle form of the main verb (-ing form).

    For example, let’s say you were talking about a child named Sarah who was playing outside before it started raining. You could say, “Sarah had been playing outside when it started raining.” In this sentence, “had been playing” is the past perfect continuous tense because it shows that Sarah was in the middle of playing outside when the rain started.
