Thank you for the explanation, Tim! It helped a lot!

I’ve been living in Canada for 6 months and sometimes I hear expressions and phrasal verbs that I don’t know the meaning exactly. When I learn something new I try to apply that word in exactly the same context I learned otherwise I can make a mistake.
Be prepared because I can ask you more things like that, after all I am surrounded by the English everywhere here 😉
Thank you again!

That’s great, Ana! Keep the questions coming! It will be helpful to all of us!

HI!!! Teacher Tim.

I am beginner in English for this reason I did not understand the difference.
I will not give up to learn phrasal verbs and expressions.

Good night Dear Teacher!

Wow! What an amazing tip, Tim! I have to confess you I’ve never thought of those nuances before. You’re a fantastic teacher through and through.

Thanks, Joilson! I really appreciate it! So glad you enjoyed the explanation.

Is it correct

I already been through a hard time with my mother-in-law?

Thank you for everything Tim!

Yes, just one little correction: I’ve already been through a hard time with my mother-in-law.

Tim, I don’t want to complicate it. But could I say “You can’t believe all I’ve been going through lately.

Thank you.

Yes, you can, José Luiz.

An outtake is a portion of a work (usually a film or music recording) that is removed in the editing process and not included in the work’s final, publicly released version.
O termo Outtake refere-se a uma parte de um trabalho (geralmente um filme ou uma música) que é eliminada durante o processo de edição e não é incluída no resultado final do mesmo.

Thank you for posting the definition here, José Luiz. That will help everyone learn and remember this term.

Dear Tim, We have in Portuguese this verb tense “Eu tenho passado por dificuldades.” Eu tenho vivido momentos difíceis”, meaning that sth started in the past and it’s still happening, that it’s not ended yet. I don’t think that in this particular case we can use both forms. Can we?? Thanks in advance! 

Hello, Patricia. As long as you use the present perfect (I’ve ____ ), I see no problem using either; but “been through” is a little more common in this situation.
