The present continuous (present progressive) refers to: - actions that are being done at or around the moment of speaking o Estoy dando clases de conducir. I’m taking driving lessons. - development and change o Los precios están subiendo. Prices are going up. - habitual actions or situations, but then the speaker mostly considers the action as temporary or recently started o Ahora estoy viviendo con mis padres. I’m living with my parents now. The present continuous cannot be used to refer to future plans, intentions, or arrangements.

In referring to what is being done at the moment of speaking, the present simple doesn’t always sound natural, so the present continuous is preferred. In questions, on the other hand, the present simple can be used more freely. ¿Qué haces? = ¿Qué estás haciendo? What are you doing?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
