What is the difference between Present Simple and Present?eQuestion Time: What is the difference between Present Simple and Present Continuous?

What is the difference between Present Simple and Present?e  @ Aftab Khan , Thank you for your question.

What is the difference between Present Simple and Present?e  As usual, I will try to explain the difference using simple language and plenty of examples.

 

What is the difference between Present Simple and Present?e

 

We have been studying Present Simple and Present Continuous this week. Both tenses are used to talk about the present, but there is an important difference between the simple present and present continuous tenses.
 
 
 
The simple present tense is used to talk about things that we do all the time. For example, we use this tense to talk about our jobs, hobbies, habits etc. We often use frequency adverbs: always, often, sometimes, usually, rarely, hardly ever, never, once/twice/three times a week/a month/a year, frequently, generally, habitually, occasionally, etc.
 
 
 
The present continuous tense is used to talk about things that are happening at the moment of speaking, or around now when the activity is still in progress. We use now, at this moment, today, currently, this week (month/year).
 

 

Compare:

  • Present Simple: What do you do? I am a teacher / write / nurse / mechanic / housewife. (This is a question about your job or occupation.)
  • Present Continuous: What are you doing? I am washing the clothes / cleaning the windows / watering the plants / cooking dinner / painting the walls.
  • I work in an office. (It is my permanent job)
  • I’m working on a new project. (I am not working on the project at this particular moment, but around this time.)
  • I read a lot of books. (habit)
  • I’m reading ‘Oliver Twist’ this week. (activity in progress around now)
  • I usually do the dishes after dinner. (routine)
  • I’m not doing the dishes today. We are eating out.(future plans)
 
 

Some more examples:

  • Mark studies English every day.
  • Mark is studying the present continuous at the moment.
  • We usually go to the supermarket on Saturdays.
  • Right now, we’re going to the supermarket.
  • They always talk to their boss in the morning.
  • They’re talking to him now.
  • Does it usually rain in the winter? No, but it’s raining now. Take an umbrella.
