    Hola Aldana, cómo estás?

    Depende en el contexto:

    1. I have been living in the same place for the last 5 years.
    2. I was living in that place 5 years ago.

    El primero you have lived there for 5 years
    El segundo you lived there 5 years ago but not now.

    saludos
    cielo :)
