I am trying to write the acknowledgment section of my thesis. I am trying to say that I have been in this place (the country where I am doing my thesis) for three years.

How to express this:

  1. It has been almost three years in XXXX

  2. It is almost three years in XXXX

  3. Almost three years has been passed in XXXX

I am not sure which form is correct (may be none of them). Thank you for your help.


You can make yourself the subject:

I have been here in ____________ for nearly three years.

or you can make the years the subject:

Nearly three years have passed since I came to ______________.

or you can make the country the subject:

________________ has been my home for the past three years.
