The present continuous tense is used for actions happening now or for an action that is unfinished. This tense is also used when the action is temporary.
The present continuous tense is formed with the subject plus the present particle form (-ing) of the main verb and the present continuous tense of the verb to be: am, is, are.
One simple example of this tense is: He is swimming. “He” is the subject, “is” is the present tense of the verb to be and “swimming” is the present participle verb form. Some other forms of this verb tense are:
