But which one would you use in your conversation as an English man or an American?

Is it correct to use both present perfect passive and present continuous passive on the following sentences:



The roadways have been jammed because of people's dependence on cars.

The roadways are being jammed because of people's dependece on cars.



Another example:

The air is being polluted by fumes from cars and trucks.

The air has been polluted by fumes from cars and trucks.

How is the structure of the following statement? How could it be rearranged?

Can we use conjunction with the past perfect:
I had parked my car and went to class.
I had parked my car then I went to class.
Which sentence is better
Topic: had

mixed conditional
If I hadn't saved so little money, I would afford to buy a new house now.
Would the previous sentence be the same as: If I didn't save so little money, I would afford to buy a new house now.
Thanks

I am trying to teach seventh grader some engilsh about future perfect and future perfect contiuous but I am running into some problems.
For example: we need to change the following sentence to its correct form:
After studing English for a few months, he will have felt more confident about speaking to people.
I know the sentence is incorrect and it should read: he will feel, instead of he will have felt.
How can cross this to the seventh grader's head, nevertheless, they are learning the future perfect and future perfect contiuous.
Thank you

"After studying for a few months, he will feel more confident about speaking to people."
Is there a key word to why couldn't we use the future perfect or future continuous in the above statement.
thank you
