Present Simple or Present Continuous?

The simple present tense is often confused with the present continuous tense. This page will explain when to use each one.

1. The simple present tense

The simple present tense is used for two main types of action:

HabitsActions which happen regularly (for example, every day or every week)
StatesThings which do not often change (for example, opinions and conditions)

Some examples will help to make this clearer:

2. The present continuous tense

The present continuous tense is used for two main types of action:
