PastFuturePresentDuration before something in the pastThey felt bad about selling the house because they had owned it for more than forty years.
She never saw a bear before she moved to Alaska.
If the Past Perfect is not referring to an action at a specific time, Past Perfect is compulsory. Here Past Perfect is referring to a lack of experience rather than an action at a specific time. For this reason, Simple Past cannot be used.She had never seen a bear before she moved to Alaska.
Use the Past Perfect Continuousto show that something started in the past and continued up until another time in the past.
James had been teaching at the university for more than a year before he left for Asia. PastFuturePresentDuration before something in the past
The motorcycle had been belonging to George for years before Tina bought it.
Non-Continuous Verbs cannot be used in any continuous tenses. Also, certain non-continuous meanings for Mixed Verbs cannot be used in continuous tenses. Instead of using Past Perfect Continuous with these verbs, you must use Past Perfect.The motorcycle had belonged to George for years before Tina bought it.
Non-Continuous Verbs are usually things you cannot see somebody doing. These verbs are rarely used in continuous tenses. Abstract Verbsto be, to want, to cost, to seem, to need, to care, to contain, to owe, to exist...Possession Verbsto possess, to own, to belong...Emotion Verbsto like, to love, to hate, to dislike, to fear, to envy, to mind…
Mixed Verbs have more than one meaning. In a way, each meaning is a unique verb. Some meanings behave like "Non-Continuous Verbs," while other meanings behave like "Normal Verbs."Mixed Verbsto appear, to feel, to have, to hear, to look, to see, to weigh...
Present tense  expresses action, activity and state of being in the present
Use the Simple Present to express the idea that an action is repeated or usual.

I have been to Mexico at least once at some point between 365 days ago and now.I have been to Mexico in the last year."Last year" and "in the last year" are very different in meaning. "Last year" means the year before now, and it is considered a specific time which requires Simple Past. "In the last year" means from 365 days ago until now. It is not considered a specific time, so it requires Present Perfect.
