HI,

I have been
You have been

He/she/it has been
-John has been ->singular
-The car has been

We have been
you have been
they have been

We use the present perfect continuous to talk about an action that started in the past and continued up to the present and might still go on.

Some examples:

I've been reading for two hours now.
We've been playing tennis for two hours.

" I have been sent an envelope." Is this sentence is right ?

But why not just say i have received an envelope?
