How to Use the Present Continuous English Grammar [Flying to Prince Rupert!]

Hello My Friends!

Are you watching a video right now? What are you doing right now? Present continuous is one of the most often used grammar in the English language. We use it all the time! In this video, I show you how to use the present continuous and the great expression “on the way.” Let’s practise together in the comments below!

I realise that it is hard when you study a language for so long but make little mistakes with some of the grammar tenses. Even though I have been studying some of the languages that I know for over 10 years I still make grammar mistakes! Honestly, it doesn’t bother me too much. However, when I am in a situation where it is very important for me to use the grammar of another language properly, like giving a speech or writing a paper, I realise how important it is for us to know how to use grammar well!

Unfortunately, there are only three ways to improve your grammar:

  1. Practice
  2. Practice
  3. Practice

Hahaha… did you see what I did there? ­čśŤ In any case! I made this video today to help you practice the present continuous grammar in English AND learn the fun new expression “on the way.”

Remember, to make a word into present continuous form you need to follow this formula:

pronoun (I, you, he, she, they, it, we) + to be + verb in the gerund (ing) form.

Example) I go to school -> I am going to school

Here are some exercises to help you review and master the present continuous grammar tense. The answers are at the bottom of the page!

*Tip* Remember to change the verb to match the subject!

A. Change the following sentences into present continuous form:

  1. I go to school.
  2. You watch TV.
  3. We play golf
  4. They run and swim.
  5. He plays football on the field.
  6. I take care of the family dog while my parents are on holiday.
  7. The tree moves in the wind.
  8. We enjoy the football game.
  9. I play games on my computer.
  10. She writes a letter to her boyfriend in Vancouver.

B. Change the following sentences to use the expression “on the/his/her/their/its/our/my way.”

*Tip* Remember “on the way” has the same meaning as “going/coming.”

  1. I am going there now.
  2. Are you coming back home?
  3. When will you be going?
  4. I ordered a package the other day, I wonder if it’s coming.
  5. Give me a call when you are coming.
