Verbs : Present Continuous Tense

We often use the present continuous tense in English. It is very different from the simple present tense, both in structure and in use.Continuous tenses are also called progressive tenses. So the present progressive tense is the same as the present continuous tense.


We use the Present Continuous Tense to talk about activities happening now.For example : 

  1. The kids are watching TV. 
  2. Who are you writing to?
  3. She is singing.


We can also use the Present Continuous Tense to talk about activities happening around now, and not necessarily this very moment.

  1. Sally is studying really hard for her exams this week.
  2. I am going to visit my Grandma this weekend.
  3. I am reading a really interesting book now. 


The Present Continuous Tense is also used to talk about activities happening in the near future, especially for planned future events.

  1.  I am seeing my dentist on Wednesday.
  2. Polly is coming for dinner tomorrow.
  3. Are you doing anything tonight? 



Quick Spelling Hint: Make sure you DO NOT spell this tense as Present Continuos or Present Continous that appear to be very typical spelling mistakes.

Pronouns are small words that take the place of a noun. We can use a pronoun instead of a noun. Pronouns are words like: heyouoursthemselvessomeeach... If we didn't have pronouns, we would have to repeat a lot of nouns.
For the example :
Sara is nine years old. She is very kind.


In this sentence above, we use the subject pronoun 'she' to replace the noun 'Sara' to make the sentence less repetition. Pronouns consist of Subject Pronoun, Object Pronoun, Possessive Pronoun and Reflexive Pronoun. Check this out child! :)
