Today's goal: understanding the difference between the present simple and the present continuous

Slide 1 - Tekstslide

Present Tenses?
The 'Present Tenses' (Tegenwoordige Tijd) all describe actions that happen/are happening today. 

"I walk to school every day."
"She is a great football player."
"We are listening to music together."

Slide 2 - Tekstslide

Present Tenses?
As you can see there are different ways of making the Present. The Present Simple and Present Continuous.

"I walk to school every day."
"She is a great football player."
"We are listening to music together."

Slide 3 - Tekstslide

Use
When we use the Present Simple, we talk about habits, facts and timetables:

I walk to school every day
The sun always rises in the east.
He likes pizza.   

Slide 4 - Tekstslide

What is the difference between the two?
It can make a very big difference when you're using the wrong tense. There are  two important things that make them different:

  • Use                  (When do you use this tense?)
  • Make               (How do you make this tense?)

Slide 5 - Tekstslide

Use
When we use the Present Continuous, we are talking about things that are happening right now:

I am walking to school right now
He is enjoying this music.
The sun is rising

Slide 6 - Tekstslide

Right now
Always
Which of these actions is happening right now? Which ones always happen?
He is talking.
She loves that music.
I am a boy.
We are listening to you.

Slide 7 - Sleepvraag

Form
When we make the Present Simple we only need a verb. We add an -s with the SHIT-rule:

I walk to school every day. 
The sun always rises in the east.
He likes pizza. 

Slide 8 - Tekstslide

Form
When we make questions (vragen) in the Present Simple we also add 'do' or 'does' (SHIT-rule) to the beginning of the sentence. The original -s in the SHIT-rule is now in DOES:

Do I walk to school every day?
Does the sun always rise in the east?
Does he like pizza?

Slide 9 - Tekstslide

Form
When we make negative sentences (ontkenningen) in the Present Simple we also add 'do' or 'does' (SHIT-rule) and 'not' to the beginning of the sentence. The original -s in the SHIT-rule is now in DOES:

I do not walk to school every day.
The sun does not always rise in the east.
He does not like pizza.

Slide 13 - Quizvraag

Form
When we make the Present Continuous we first choose between am/are/is. Then we add the verb + ing. When the verb ends with an -e we delete that to make space for the -ing.

I am walking to school right now. 
He is enjoying this music.
The sun is rising.     (rise)

Slide 14 - Tekstslide

Form
When we make questions in the Present Continuous we simply put the am/are/is at the beginning of the sentence.

Am I walking to school right now? 
Is he enjoying this music?
Is the sun rising?

Slide 15 - Tekstslide

Form
When we make negative sentences in the Present Continuous we simply put 'not' between am/are/is and the verb.

I am not walking to school right now.
He is not enjoying this music.
The sun is not rising.
