should we use 'being' with past participle' when we want to give reson for the action in the main clause? For example

For example,

Being offered a visa for USA, I'm going to go there. (since/because I was offered a visa, I . . . )

He Being employed in teaching at a school, he could hardly manage time for painting. (because/since he was employed,he could. . . .)

can we can use"being+p.p" in both past and present situation(As above sentences)?

  • #3 and #4 should be have gotten instead of have got. – jtbandes May 7 '16 at 3:04

    @jtbandes BrE uses got as the past participle. AmE uses gotten as the past participle, so they are equally correct. – Alejandro May 7 '16 at 6:33
  • @jtbandes, nope, according to the rules of English, it must be got (unless you are an american) – DimanNe Mar 10 '19 at 20:00
  • I wonder why it's so delayed to answer this question! – yubraj Mar 11 '19 at 16:06
