Present Continuous Tense: Expressing Actions in the Here and Now
In today’s conversation, we will be exploring the importance of using verbs in the present continuous form. This verb tense helps us talk about actions happening right now or around this time. By using the present continuous, we can express what we and others are currently doing, providing a vivid and lively description of our activities.
For example, if you want to ask what someone is doing, you can ask:
A: What are you doing? B: I am playing with my toy car.
playing is the verb in the present continuous form.
If you want to ask a girl, you can use she as the pronoun of the sentence:
A: What is she doing? B: She is dancing ballet.
If you want to ask a boy, we say:
A; What is he doing? B: He is playing soccer with his friends.
If you want to ask about two or more people doing the activity we can say:
A: What are they doing? B: They are dancing.
