14 1.) To form present progressive we start with the verb >. Remember how to conjugate >?

15 estoyestamos estás estáis está,están The conjugated forms of the verb > tells us who is doing the action.

16 2.) To form the present progressive with > verbs, we drop the > and add > Hablar = Habl + ando = Hablando

17 2.) To form the present participle with > & > verbs, we drop the > & > and add > Comer = comiendo Escribir = escribiendo

18 Let’s practice the present participles (-ando, iendo) 1. Beber 2. Tomar 3. Comer 4. Vivir 5. Bailar

19 1. bebiendo = drinking 2. tomando = taking, drinking 3. comiendo = eating 4. viviendo = living 5. bailando = dancing One way to express the –ing suffix in English is to use the present participle.

20 So we put it with > so we can tell who is doing the action. These > and > words are called the present participle. The present participle can never stand alone.

21 To do this, first conjugate >, then add the correct > or > to the action verb. Estoy = I am bailando = dancing

22 Remember the present progressive gives emphasis that something is happening now. Está escuchando.Escucha.

23 Practice by writing or saying the sentences with the present progressive.
