2. Present Continuous, function

As with all tenses in English, the speaker's attitude is as important as the time of the action or event. When someone uses the present continuous, they are thinking about something that is unfinished or incomplete.

The present continuous is used:

  • to describe an action that is going on at this moment e.g.
    You are using the Internet. You are studying English grammar.
  • to describe an action that is going on during this period of time or a trend, e.g.
    Are you still working for the same company? More and more people are becoming vegetarian.
  • to describe an action or event in the future, which has already been planned or prepared (See also 'Ways of expressing the future) e.g.
    We're going on holiday tomorrow. I'm meeting my boyfriend tonight. Are they visiting you next winter?
  • to describe a temporary event or situation, e.g.
    He usually plays the drums, but he's playing bass guitar tonight. The weather forecast was good, but it's raining at the moment.
  • with 'always, forever, constantly', to describe and emphasise a continuing series of repeated actions, e.g.
    Harry and Sally are always arguing! You're forever complaining about your mother-in-law!
