1)He's been watching TV since 5 o'clock or He has been watching TV since 5 o'clock.
2)It's been raining all day or It has been raining all day.

I'm confused. Could you please tell me which one is correct.

Hello amit_ck,

Both forms are fine. In English we often use contractions like this in speech or in less formal written language, and they do not change the meaning.

Well, wait here LONG ENOUGH, MOST OF LONDON WILL COME IN.
Could you please simply explain me what does they mean in this sentence.

Hello amit_ck,

This is meant to be a humorous comment, showing us how busy the cafe is. So many people come in that if you wait for a long enough time, most of the peope who live in London will have come in at some point.

Excellent course. The quality this lessons are wonderful.

I listened more 2/3 of this episode and learnt something from comments below, such as the differ of "suppose to" or "should"... Many thanks and will try to study English on this site everyday.

by the way I´m very happy with the course

I'm still a bit confused about the use of someone- somebody or anybody - anyone. I'm not sure when to use it
