現在進行形を使ってみよう

The Present Continuous Tense
現在進行形を使って講師と会話してみましょう。
現在進行形は動詞にingをつけることで、「今」に集中して表現することができます。現在形と比べてみましょう。 He plays soccer after school. 彼は放課後サッカーをする 上の例では彼は放課後がくる度にサッカーをするという反復動作を表現できます。対して回答例は現在進行形です。 普段どうしているかは関係なく、彼は今サッカーをしています。 そんな「今まさに行っていること」を表現したいときは迷わず現在進行形を使ってみましょう。 【回答例】 He is playing soccer with his friends now. 彼は友達と今サッカーをしている
