Tenses in English Present Tense

Simple Present Tense

A sentence is presented in simple present tense when it is used to describe an action that’s happening at present and does not indicate when the action is expected to end.

The simple present tense is used when:

 The action that is taking place in general.
 The action is not only occurring now; it repeats after regular intervals of time.
 To indicate facts that are generally true.
 The action for relating habits and routines that happen all the time, be it in the future, past or present.


The verb “+s/es” form is used;
 If the subject is 3rd person singular. The verb is used in its original form;
 If the subject is 1st and/or 2nd person singular.
 If the subject is 1st and/or 2nd person plural.
 If the subject is 3rd person plural.

Some Examples:

 The sun sets in the west.
 All the cars stop at this crossing.
 Michael teaches social studies in a school.
 That notice reads, “No parking”.
 Rajdhani leaves at seven in the morning.
 The teacher said if she works hard she will pass.
 There goes the taxi.
 Do you play tennis?
 He does not go to the temple.
 Does he write novels?

Present Progressive Or Present Continuous Though the simple present and present continuous tenses are used interchangeably, present continuous usually defines an act that is going on
at the time of speaking.

The sentences with present progressive tense are used when:

 Something is taking place now while speaking and has a definite end as well.
 When something is already decided and arranged as well to perform it.
 To indicate an undesirable habit.


 Use the first form of the verb “+ing”
 Singular 3rd person subject — use ‘is’
 Plural 1st, 2nd and 3rd person and singular 2nd person subject — use ‘are’
 1st person singular — use ‘am’

In other words, it is “Subject + be (is, am, are) + Verb+ -ing + Object”

Some Examples:

 Please wait for a moment, Shyam is talking to Mary.
 We are late; he will be waiting for us at the restaurant now.
 Mom, I am playing football.
 Are they still living here?
 She is having her breakfast now.
 I’m planning to meet the Director tonight.

 For almost five generations, my family members have been engineers.

 In order to avoid delays in my work, I have been doing it regularly.

 I have always wanted to ride in this vehicle. Present Perfect Continuous Tense Usually, Present Perfect Continuous Tense is used for a situation that has occurred in the past and which continues until that moment.

 Singular subject (has been), Plural subject, or I (have been)
 ‘Since’— if the point of time is mentioned.
 ‘For’ — if the duration of time is specified.
