Grammar Rules

We use the Present Simple to talk about routines – what you do every day or every week.

We use the Present Continuous to talk about things you are doing now.

I watch cartoons every day.
I’m watching a film now.  

Examples:

play tennis every Sunday.
I’m playing hockey now.
She eats fruit every day.
She’s eating an apple now.

Remember!

For the present simple, add ‘s’ or ‘es’ for he/she/it. Make the negative with ‘don’t’ or ‘doesn’t’. For the present continuous, use the verb ‘to be’ and ‘-ing’. Add ‘not’ to make the negative.  

My dad makes dinner every evening. He doesn’t make lunch.
We are studying English now. We aren’t studying maths.
