Present Continuous Tense
The Present Continuous Tense helps you say the situations that occur during a conversation or the actions you take at that moment. If an action is done at the moment of speaking, the Present Continuous Tense is used for the action done at that moment. For example, if a friend is talking to you while you are studying and you want to tell him that you are studying, the Present Continuous Tense should be used here. This Tense is one of the most important Tenses to learn for people starting to speak English.
How to Make the Present Continuous Tense?
If you want to make a sentence with the Present Continuous Tense, you should use the basic English sentence order, that is, the subject-verb-object order. The most important thing you need to know about the Present Continuous Tense is that the verb that comes after the subject and the auxiliary verb take the “-ing” suffix. The “-ing” suffix is generally used in all Continuous Tenses and tells us that this additional action is an action that requires a process.
