Present Continuous Examples You are watching TV Are you watching TV? You are not watching TV USE Now Use the Present Continuous with Normal Verbs to express the idea that something is happening now, at this very moment It can also be used to show that something is not happening now Examples You are learning English now You are not swimming now Are you sleeping? I am sitting am not standing Is he sitting or standing? They are reading their books They are not watching television What are you doing? Why arent you doing your homework? USE Longer Actions in Progress Now In English, now can mean this second, today, this month, this year, this century, and so on Sometimes, we use the Present Continuous to say that we are in the process of doing longer action which is in progress; however, we might not be doing it at this exact second Examples (All of these sentences can be said while eating dinner in restaurant ) am studying to become doctor am not studying to become dentist am reading the book Tom Sawyer am not reading any books right now Are you working on any special projects at work? Arent you teaching at the university now? USE Near Future Sometimes, speakers use the Present Continuous to indicate that something will or will not happen in the near future Examples am meeting some friends after work am not going to the party tonight Is he visiting his parents next weekend? Isnt he coming with us tonight? USE Repetition and Irritation with Always The Present Continuous with words such as always or constantly expresses the idea that something irritating or shocking often happens Notice that the meaning is like Simple Present, but with negative emotion Remember to put the words always or constantly between be and verb ing Examples She is always coming to class late He is constantly talking wish he would shut up dont like them because they are always complaining REMEMBER Non Continuous Verbs/ Mixed Verbs It is important to remember that Non Continuous Verbs cannot be used in any continuous tenses Also, certain non continuous meanings for Mixed Verbs cannot be used in continuous tenses Instead of using Present Continuous with these verbs, you must use Simple Present Examples She is loving this chocolate ice cream Not Correct She loves this chocolate ice cream Correct
