The present continuous (sometimes called the present progressive) tense in English is really easy to make and is the same for all verbs. We make it using the present simple of 'be' + verb-ing: (Click here if you'd prefer to learn how to USE this tense)
Here is how we make the positive:
Positive Positive Short Form I am sleeping I'm sleeping you are sleeping you're sleeping he is sleeping he's sleeping she is sleeping she's sleeping it is sleeping it's sleeping we are sleeping we're sleeping they are sleeping they're sleeping
We can make the negative by adding 'not':
Negative Negative Short Form I am not sleeping I'm not sleeping you are not playing you aren't playing he is not reading he isn't reading she is not working she isn't working it is not raining it isn't raining we are not cooking we aren't cooking they are not listening they aren't listening
Questions are also really, really easy. Just like we made the question with 'be' in the present simple, here we also put 'am', 'is', or 'are' before the subject to make a 'yes / no' question:
Yes / No Questions am I eating chocolate ? are you studying now ? is he working ? is she doing her homework ? is it raining ? are we meeting at six ? are they coming ?
For 'wh' questions, just put the question word at the front:
Wh Questions Why am I eating chocolate ? What are you studying now ? When is he working ? What is she doing ? Why is it raining ? Who are we meeting ? How are they travelling ?
