Present Continuous


El Present Continuous se usa en los siguientes casos:

- Para acciones que ocurren ahora o en torno a este momento. Por ello suelen ir acompañadas de expresiones como: now, right now, at the moment, today, this morning/week.. o imperativos como Listen! o Look!.
They are playing tennis now.
She is sleeping at the moment.
Look! She is jumping into the river.
-Para planes en un futuro próximo. En este caso la oración siempre incluye una expresión de futuro como: tomorrow, next week o in ten days / in ten day´s time .
She is flying to London tomorrow.
We are meeting next Monday.

Una excepción a esta regla son los Stative Verbs. Estos verbos no aparecen en tiempos contínuos. Los vemos en Presente Simple aunque la situación pida un tiempo contínuo. Estos verbos expresan:
- Sentidos (feel.see,hear, sound..)
- Pensamientos (believe, hope, understand, suppose..)
- Emociones ( like, hate, love, want...)
- Posesión (belong to, owe..)
- Medidas (cost, weigh....)
