Now” and respond using the “Now” grammar The keyword is “BE + verb + ING” okay for example What ARE you doING? what IS he cookING? what ARE they drinkING? all of that is “Now” because you have “be + verb+ ING“ Like before with “Habit” you need to start with a person to explain this “I”, ”you”, ”they”, or ”he” and ”she” with ”Now” you have your person then you need “be” okay now, “be” is a special verb in English it changes a lot, so for example if you have ”I” I… am you… are We… are they… are and then we have “he”, “she” and 'it” so “he” becomes “is” He… is She… is It… is OK, so we have "person" we have "be" Now we need a verb with ”ING” added to the verb He is drinkING He is talkING I am teachING After that, you can add a noun or an adjective, usually a noun in this case For example, I am teaching English You are studying English He is drinking water Then you can add a time now this grammar is all about “now” so this isn't so important, but it's good practice He is drinking water now I am teaching English now You are studying English now Boom, you're done that's the grammar Keyword = “be + verb + ing” okay, let's practice, I'm going to ask you some questions and for a few of these I'm going to show you some pictures Listen to the grammar in the question notice the keyword “be + verb + ing” think “Ah! Now!” reply with the same grammar I am drinking now. I recommend you turn OFF the subtitles now okay, turn them off try to speak normally with no help! It's VERY important this is SPEAKING practice not reading practice! So, Just Speak! When you're finished, come back to the start of the questions, turn ON the subtitles and review!
