Tenses > Present Continuous


1. The present continuous is used to talk about actions or events that are happening at the moment:
  • I am writing a letter to my parents.

  • Letīs stay at home. It is raining.

2. The present continuous is used to indicate that an action or activity is temporary rather than permanent:
  • Andy is staying with some friends until he finds a flat.

  • Their son is working in an office for two weeks.

3. We also use the present continuous to speak about changes, developments and trends:
  • Our city is developing all the time.

  • Unemployment and inflation are falling in Europe.

4. We can also use the present continuous to speak about future arrangements:
  • We are going to the cinema tonight.

  • What are you doing on Sunday ?
