Present continuous review

The present continuous is used to talk about actions that are happening at the moment.

Contingut exercicis

It is formed with the verb “to be” and by adding -ing to the main verb.

To be + verb (-ing)

I am reading a book

She is dancing

Notice that when the main verb ends in -e, this letter drops: dance – dancing.

 

To make negative sentences, “not” is added after the verb “to be”:

  • She is not dancing. (Long form)
  • She isn't dancing. (Short form)

 

To make questions, the order of the words is different. The verb “to be” goes at the beginning:

  • She is dancingIs she dancing?
  • You are talking on the phone → Are you talking on the phone?

 

Sometimes we find phrases like “at the moment”, “now”, “right now”, etc., which help us know that we need to use the present continuous.

  • Tom is playing football at the moment.
  • They are working at the bar right now.
