1.) To form present progressive
we start with the verb
<<estar>>.
Remember how to conjugate
<<estar>>?
estoy estamos
estás estáis
está, están
The conjugated forms of the
verb <<estar>> tells us who is
doing the action.
2.) To form the present
progressive with <<–ar>>
verbs, we drop the <<-ar>> and
add <<-ando>>
Hablar = Habl + ando =
Hablando
2.) To form the present
participle with <<–er>> &
<<–ir>> verbs, we drop the
<<–er>> & <<–ir>> and add
<<-iendo>>
Comer = comiendo
Escribir = escribiendo
Let’s practice the present
participles (-ando, iendo)
1.
2.
3.
4.

Beber
Tomar
Comer
Vivir
Bailar
One way to express the –ing suffix in
English is to use the present participle.
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
bebiendo = drinking
tomando = taking, drinking
comiendo = eating
viviendo = living
bailando = dancing
These <<-ando>> and <<-iendo>>
words are called the present
participle. The present
participle can never stand
alone.
So we put it with <<estar>> so
we can tell who is doing the
action.
To do this, first conjugate
<<estar>>, then add the
correct <<-ando>> or <<-iendo>>
to the action verb.
Estoy = I am
bailando = dancing
Remember the present progressive gives
emphasis that something is happening now.
Está escuchando.
Escucha.
Practice by writing or saying the
