Present Continuous Tense (Present Progressive Tense)
When something is happening at the same time we’re talking about it, that’s when we use the present continuous tense. We form it by using the present tense of be + present participle (the root word + ‑ing).
She is washing the car as we speak.
Are you coming with us to the party?
Where are we going?
I am not arguing with you; I am discussing the matter with you.
Remember not to use the present continuous tense with non-action verbs like seem and know. These verbs should use the simple present.
She is seeming tense.
She seems tense.
