  • 1. Present Continuous
  • 2. Present Continuous
    • Formação:
    • No tempo progressivo ou contínuo utiliza-se o verbo auxiliar to be a todas as pessoas junto com o gerúndio -ing do verbo principal.
    • Ex.: The climate is gett ing warner. (get)
    • That child is grow ing bigger every day. (grow)
    • The Universe is expand ing , and has been since its beginning. (expand)
  • 3. Present Continuous
    • Usos:
    • 1) Utilizamos o present progressive/continuous para expressar atividades que estão ocorrendo normalmente no momento em que se fala.
    • Ex.: Please don’t make so much noise. I ’m working .
    • “ Where’s Margaret?” “She’s having a bath”.
    • Let’s go out now. It isn’t raining anymore.
    • I’m very tired. I ’m going to bed now. Good night!
    • 2) Usamos o progressive/continuous quando falamos sobre coisas que estão acontecendo no período em que se fala, não necessariamente no exato momento.
    • Ex.: John and Sarah are talking in a Café. John says:
    • – I ’m reading an interesting book at the moment. I’ll lend it to you when I’ve finished it.
    • (John isn’t reading the book at the time of speaking.)
  • 4. Present Continuous
    • 3) Para fazer referências a ações futuras planejadas ou previstas.
    • Ex.: Next year, we are spending our vacation at Nottingham.
    • Janice and Fred are leaving for Paris tomorrow.
    • 4) É utilizado, ainda, para descrever ações que ocorrem com freqüência ou que se repetem. É comum o uso do advérbio always , que é posicionado entre o verbo auxiliar e o verbo principal.
    • Ex.: I ’m always doing something.
    • I’ve lost my key again. I ’m always losing my things.
    • Ney is always telling the same jokes.
  • 5. Present Continuous
    • Cuidado:
    • Os verbos a seguir não são usados no tempo progressivo.
    • like, love, hate, want, prefer, believe, see, know, realise, suppose, need, understand, remember, taste, belong, contain, consist, depend, seem, hear, smell
  • 6. Present Continuous
    • Lembrando que na forma negativa basta acrescentar o not junto ao verbo to be , ou abreviá-lo.
    • Ex.: I am not working now
    • She is not (isn´t) playing baseball.
    • We are not (aren´t) eating pizza.
  • 7. Present Continuous
    • Já na forma Interrogativa basta inverter a ordem do sujeito com o verbo to be, e acrescentar o ponto de interrogação no final da pergunta.
    • Ex.: Is she studing English now ?
    • Are they going to Fred´s farm ?
  • 8. Present Continuous
    • Thank you very much !!!
