The continuous form is used when an action has occurred and the action is continuing. Often known as the “ing” form
When something has stated and is still happening at the same time the person is talking about it. We form it by using the present tense of be + present participle (the root word + ‑ing).
The past continuous form is used to refer to temporal situations when something happened in the past continued to occur, but has now ceased. It’s made with the past tense of be + the present participle (the root word = ‑ing).
The future continuous relates one action in the future to another specific action or time. It is made by using will + be + present participle (root word + ‑ing).
