Present Continuous czyli czas teraźniejszy ciągły - Czasy gramatyczne (Tenses) - Gramatyka angielska - Gramatyka angielska - Jak tworzymy Present Continuous? Kluczowym dla czasu teraźniejszego ciągłego jest czasownik „to be”. To właśnie on funkcjonuje jako operator w tworzeniu zdań i to on podlega odmianie. Pozostałe czasowniki w zdaniu nie podlegają odmianie, zostaje do nich jedynie dodana końcówka „ing”. Nie ma wyjątków od tej reguły. A więc: przykładowe zdanie „on gra teraz na komputerze” będzie wyglądało tak: He is playing a computer now W pozostałych zaś osobach: I am playing a computer now – ja gram teraz na komputerze You are playing a computer now – Ty grasz teraz na komputerze She/it is playing a computer now – Ona/ono gra teraz na komputerze We are playing a computer now – my gramy teraz na komputerze You are playing a computer now – Wy gracie teraz na komputerze They are playing a computer now – Oni grają teraz na komputerze Znając dobrze odmianę czasownika „to be” będziemy w stanie bezproblemowo stosować czas Present Continuous w języku mówionym i pisanym. Nie każdy czasownik Ale: On jest nieuprzejmy

Present continuous We use the present continuous (am/is/are + -ing) to talk about temporary things which have begun but haven't finished. They are often happening now, at this moment. Here are some examples of things happening now. I'm just uploading some photos to Facebook and I'm sending a message to Billie. I'm not sure what 'temporary' means. Yes, absolutely! OK, I see what you mean. Yes, I’m glad you asked me that. At eight I’m meeting Lucas, just for a quick coffee. What about questions and negatives? For questions you just change round the subject and the verb to be. Are you working hard for the exam? For negatives you add not after the verb to be. You're not really studying at all, are you? That's fine, but I suppose there are some spelling rules for –ing forms? Yes, you're right. have - having ride - riding If a verb ends in a vowel + a consonant, the consonant is usually doubled before you add –ing. swim - swimming run - running visit - visiting open - opening begin - beginning Whoops! Why not?

Participle Clauses 1 Reduced Relative Clauses (Download this page in PDF here.) (Click here for information about participle adjectives.) We can use participle clauses after a noun in the same way as relative clauses. 1: A present participle (verb + ing) can be used in the same way as an active relative clause: The man driving the car is a friend of mine.(= The man who is driving the car is a friend of mine). The present participle can replace any active tense, not just the present continuous tense: Lorries coming over the bridge have to be careful of the wind.(= Lorries that come over the bridge have to be careful of the wind).Who was the girl wearing the red dress? 2: A past participle can be used in the same way as a simple passive relative clause: 3: 'Being + past participle' can be used in the same way as a continuous passive relative clause: Things to notice: 1: We generally don't use perfect participles ('having + past participle') in this case.
