  1. Hi Chris-
    These are useful tips for adults trying to learn the English Language. I like your clear comparisons between American English and British English.

    Keep up the good work!

    The color coding you used made it really easy for me to follow along. I think some native English speakers could learn a bit from this! haha. But I studied TESOL in college before dropping out–it’s a great field to get into!

    • Hi Sean,
      Thank you for reading. I’m glad you found the article clear and easy to understand. You’re right, some native speakers sometimes need grammar reminders.I agree with you completely, teaching English as a foreign language is a great field to get into.

  3. I think this is great! Especially for English speakers (myself included) who need to brush up and I think its also formatted in a way I can share with my little cousin and we both can learn.
    Thanks!

    • Hi Etaya,
      I’m so glad you liked the article. I wrote it primarily for those who’s first language is not English but it makes me feel great to hear that native speakers can also benefit from it and that they think it will be helpful in teaching or reviewing grammatical concepts with the younger members of their family.
      Thank you so much for reading and for your kind comments.

    • Hi Kien,
      Thank you for reading the article. It makes me happy to hear that you found it informative. Thank you also for recommending the site to other international students. The purpose of my site is to try to aid students in their journey to learn the English language and for it to serve as a way to review for both native and non-native speakers.

  4. I’m enjoying your content! Thank you for the clear, easy-to-understand article covering present continuous tense. The examples were very helpful. English can be very daunting, but you have managed to make is seem a little easier.

    • Hi Ryan,
      Thank you for taking the time to read the article. You have no idea how happy it makes me to read that you found it clear and easy-to-understand. I always worry that those reading may not understand my explanations. And yes, English can be tough and somewhat intimidating for some people. I’m glad you think my article may help.

  5. Cristina, you do take me back down memory lane with your tutorials, to when I first started learning English at school and then more in depth when I moved to UK. And for an Italian mother tongue as I am, the present continuous was one of the biggest obstacles to understand. Most Latin languages do not have a present progressive – hence knowing when and how to use it and apply it to every day conventional talking was a job and a half to understand. Now, after living in UK for over 20 years, the weird thing is that I try apply it to my Italian when I go back home!!!

    • Hi Giuliana,
      I didn’t know the Italian language doesn’t have the present continuous tense. Although my grandfather was Italian, I never learned the language and since he moved to a Spanish speaking country at 15 he never really spoke Italian. I do know that Spanish has a present continuous tense so I guess Italians have a harder time learning English than Spanish speakers do.
      It’s obvious you learned English very well if you are trying to use a tense that doesn’t exist in that language when speaking Italian.
      Thank you so much for visiting the site and for reading the article
