Present continuous tense by Dynamic IELTS – IELTS grammar 2021

       Present continuous tense

Present continuous is also known as present progressive.

Present continuous tense is quite different, but it’s a very simple tense in both structure and use.

Firstly let’s talk about the structure.

For active sentences,

Sub + auxiliary verb( am/is/are) + ing form of main verb + obj

i.e.,  I + am + reading a book.

For negative Sentences,

Sub + auxiliary verb(am/is/are) + not + ing form of main verb + obj

i.e., I + am+ not+ reading a book.

For question sentences,

Auxiliary verb(am/is/are) + subject + ing form of main verb + obj

i.e.,  Am + I + reading a book?

Rules

• We have to use in form of the main verb in this tense.

• Verbs that refer to emotions or desires(fear, love, hate), usually don’t take the continuous form.

• Whenever you use this tense for the future you have to consider time.

Uses

1. for things that happening right now

i.e.,  I am writing a letter.

        She is playing Piano.

2. the thing that happens just before and after time.

i.e.,  We are having dinner at 8          O’clock.

       I am taking my IELTS exam in July.

3. things that happen again and again.

[ Note – we normally use ‘always’ in this structure.]

i.e.,

1. It is always raining in Gandhinagar.

2. She is always wearing the black shirt during work.

4. in the future,

Note – for future use, we have to plan things right now like…

  1.  I can go gym with you tomorrow  because I am not working.
  2.  We are going to tour tonight. we have already booked plan tickets.
  3.  Why are you not  coming with us on trip next month ?
  4.  What are you doing after two days ?

 In a rare case we use this tense in past(never use in writing )

[Note – we normally use ‘when’ before using this sentence]

i.e.,

• When I am telling you about that things.

• When you are telling a story.
