Q: What is the difference between I have made a graduation album for a year. and I have been made a graduation album for a year. ?
A: “Have” is what you say when you’ve started something in the present and completed it. “Have been” would be when you started something in the present and it is still happening.
The first sentence is ok but maybe say it like this “I have made a graduation album this year”. For the second sentence, you would change “made” to “making” because have and have been are present tense, you would need to use present tense verbs. Made is past tense and making is present tense. The sentence would then look like this “I have been making a graduation album for a year.”
