"Past perfect continuous" é usado no inglês falado?

Hi there!
This is my first time here, so I want to say hello to everybody before posting my question.
I have a doubt: Is the past perfect continuous often used in spoken English? Is it necessary to be known in case it becomes part of a test for a job? Is it likely to appear in a test?
Look forward to an answer.
Thank you a lot.

My regards

Miríades,

The past perfect continuous can be important for you to be able to speak English well.But you don´t have to learn it from the beginning,you can wait until you´ve learned the basic verb tenses.Yes,it is likely to be on a test,and you might need to use it in a job interview,for example.Here is a link where you´ll be able to study it:
