Present Continous or Progressive

El  Present Progressive o Continuous se utiliza en inglés para hablar de situaciones en curso, que han empezado pero aun no han llegado a su fin: It’s raining (Está lloviendo). Esta forma verbal se utiliza a menudo para describir situaciones que tenemos delante de nuestros ojos o que sabemos que se están desarollando mientras hablamos. Por lo tanto, muy amenudo el Present Progressive está acompañado por adverbios o expresiones adverbiales como now, at the moment, at present, currently etc.
