GRAMMAR TIP:What Is Present Continuous?
The present continuous is one of the present tenses used in modern English, the others being the simple present and the emphatic present. All of these can be employed in both the indicative and subjunctive moods. The present continuous is used in several instances: to describe something which is happening at the exact moment of speech, to describe an action that is taking place now, but not at the exact moment of speech, to describe an event which is planned in the future, with always, but meaning often. To form the present continuous, one uses the appropriate conjugation of 'to be' from the present simple and puts the present participle of the chosen verb after. When using the interrogative with the present continuous, one does not use the verb to do as with the present simple, rather, one swaps the positions of the conjugation of to be and the present participle.
