errors in notes and tips

This is for the Dutch language course. I think there are a couple of errors in the tips and notes for verbs: present perfect: weak verbs.

1) The present participle is placed at the end of the sentence, after the object or any adverbs.

I think it's supposed to say that the past participle is placed at the end of the sentence...

2) In English one can use the present perfect continuous to describe actions that are still ongoing. This is not impossible in Dutch. Instead, you must use the present tense together with the adverb “al”: I have been waiting for hours. -> “Ik wacht al uren.” or “Ik ben al uren aan het wachten.”

do you really mean 'this is not impossible in Dutch', or that it is impossible, or that it's not possible

Many thanks, PinkyT4
