Present continuous – actions happening now

To say that an action is happening now or is temporary, we need a new tense, we use present continuous.

Pentru a spune ca o acțiune se desfășoară acum sau este temporară, avem nevoie de un nou timp verbal, folosim prezentul continuu.

Form:

Subj + to be(am,is,are)+ vb+ ing ending

Eg. The boss is talking on the phone at the moment, come back later. – Seful vorbeste la telefon in acest moment, vino mai tarziu.

⛔️I normally drink coffee, but today I am drinking tee. – In mod normal beau cafea, dar azi beau ceai.

⛔️Stative verbs are not used in this tense, you can see them below- verbele statice nu sunt folosite cu acest timp verbal, le puteti vedea mai jos.

❗️I am loving pizza. Incorrect

❗️I love pizza. Correct

❗️I am not knowing the answer. Incorrect

❗️I don’t know the answer. Correct
