The Present Continuous Tense
1. We use the Present Continuous Tense to talk about activities happening now.
Examples: The kids are watching TV. I am sitting down, because I am tired.
2. We can also use the Present Continuous Tense to talk about activities happening around now, and not necessarily this very moment.
Examples: Sally is studying really hard for her exams this week. I am reading a really interesting book now.
3. The Present Continuous Tense is also used to talk about activities happening in the near future, especially for planned future events.
Examples: I am seeing my dentist on Wednesday. Are you doing anything tonight?
