The Present Progressive has TWO components: A conjugation of estar and a present participle The first part PRESENT refers to the present tense conjunction ESTAR Present progressive uses estar since it describes a “state” that you are in The second part PROGRESSIVE refers to the PARTICIPLE
The participle is the "-ing" form of a verb Ex: running, playing, ect. Form the participle by dropping the -ar, -er, or -ir from the infinitive of a verb and adding one of two endings, -ando or –iendo. To –ar verbs add –ando and to –er and –ir verbs add -iendo
