學習語法的時間到了！現在進行時（present continuous）和一般現在時（present simple）是兩個常用的英語時態。本期節目教你一個區分這兩大時態的妙招！
Hello, and welcome to BBC Learning English. I’m Phil.
And I’m going to tell you how you can talk about actions in the present. So the question is – do you say ‘I’m doing something’ or ‘I do something’?
What you need to ask is – is it something that you’re doing right now? Or is it something that is always true?
So for example, if I say ‘I’m drinking coffee.’ It’s true right now!
If you want to talk about what you do every day – I get up at 6 o’clock. I leave home at 7. It’s always true!
Now we know you’re watching a video right now.
Present continuous vs present simple
1. To talk about something that you are doing right now, use the present continuous tense.
- I‘m drinking coffee.
- You‘re watching a video.
2. To talk about something that is always true, use the present simple tense.
- I get up at 6 o’clock.
- I leave home at 7.
