Sorry about the spelling of Chile.
No I am not in Chile. I am not hungry either.

I truly thought the questions were clear.

When I say: "I have studied Spanish here in Chile."
Does that mean I have stopped studying Spanish?

When I say: "I have lived in this city and know it well."
Does that mean that I have stopped living in this city?

When I say: "I have shouted at you for 10 minutes and you haven't reacted at all yet."
Does that mean I have stopped shouting at you?

When I say: "They have shot at us for 15 minutes."
Does that mean that they have stopped shooting at us?

The answers are all "No, not necessarily."

From just "I have studied Spanish here in Chile" we don't know whether you are still studying it or whether you have stopped studying it.

You can add more information that shows that continuing is not incompatible with the original sentence.
"I have studied Spanish here in Chile for three years, and I will be continuing to study it here for another two years before completing my degree."

You can add more information that shows that stopping is not incompatible with the original sentence.

"I have studied Spanish here in Chile for three years, and that's enough for me. Tomorrow I start French."

Isn't it a better way to say''I have been studying Spanish here in Chile for three years.''?
