The Present Continuous form of a verb is made with the present tense of the verb ‘to be’ and the present participle of the main verb. In English, we usually use the present simple to talk about fixed arrangements, such as a timetable or a schedule. In the Present Simple, some verbs are not usually used in the continuous form because they do not show actions.
