Le Présent BE + ING

______________________________________


Si on utilise le présent simple pour décrire une habitude ou une vérité générale, le présent BE + ING est par essence le temps de l'action.

Quand utilise-t-on le présent BE+ING?

        --> pour parler d'une action en déroulement. 

Ex: Thomas is doing his homework.
(Thomas fait ses devoirs / Thomas est en train de faire ses devoirs.)

        --> pour décrire une situation provisoire.

Ex: I am staying at the hotel until I find an apartment.
(Je vis à l'hôtel jusqu'à ce que je trouve un appartement.)
