Present progressive

Present progressive

The present progressive expresses an action that is still in progress. (is occurring or happening right now)

The event is in progress at the time the speaker is saying the sentence. The event began in the past, is in progress now, and will probably continue into the future. 

am /is/ are + ing

Some examples:

  • Ann can’t come to the phone right now because she is taking a shower.
  • I’m reading my grammar book right now.
  • John and Sara are babies. They are crying. I can hear them right now. Maybe they are hungry.
  • It isn’t snowing right now.
  • Is the teacher speaking right now?

Two important points

  • If the verb ends in ‘e’, you should omit it when you want to add -ing.

Come: coming

Write: writing

Dance: dancing

  • If the three last letters of a word are consonant, vowel, and consonant (CVC), you need to double the last letter.

Run: running

Swim: swimming

Sit: sitting
