📝 Trucos para el Present Simple y el Present Continuous

1. Para formar el Present Simple (presente simple) en inglés, solo necesitas añadir ‘s’ o ‘es’ al verbo en la tercera persona del singular (he, she, it). Por ejemplo, «He plays football» (Él juega al fútbol). Para las demás personas (I, you, we, they) y la tercera persona del plural, el verbo se mantiene en su forma base. Por ejemplo, «I play football» (Yo juego al fútbol).

2. Para formar el Present Continuous (presente continuo) en inglés, utiliza el verbo ‘to be’ (am, is, are) seguido de un verbo en gerundio (-ing). Por ejemplo, «I am studying» (Estoy estudiando). Recuerda que el verbo ‘to be’ debe concordar con el sujeto (I am, you are, he is, she is, etc.).

3. Para distinguir entre el Present Simple y el Present Continuous, ten en cuenta que el Present Simple se utiliza para hablar de acciones habituales, rutinas o situaciones permanentes. Por ejemplo, «I often watch TV» (A menudo veo la televisión). En cambio, el Present Continuous se usa para hablar de acciones que están ocurriendo en el momento de hablar o en un momento temporal específico en el presente. Por ejemplo, «He is watching TV right now» (Él está viendo la televisión en este momento).
