  • whenever and wherever you like

  • it works like this

  • I'm going to teach you some simple grammar, okay?

  • and then I'm going to ask you a bunch of questions

  • using that grammar

  • you're going to have five seconds to respond

  • and then I'll ask you another question

  • simple

  • If you haven't seen Part 1 yet

  • I highly recommend you go back

  • This system is designed around just

  • 4 main areas in English

  • Part 1 wasHabit

  • things we are doing now

  • Part 3 isfuture

  • and Part 4 ispast

  • with just these 4 areas

  • you can speak English!

  • so today we are looking atNow

  • things you are doing now

  • like before withHabit”,

  • Nowhas a keyword IN the questions

  • listen for the word thinkah!! Now

  • and respond using theNowgrammar

  • The keyword isBE + verb + INGokay

  • for example

  • What ARE you doING?

  • what IS he cookING?

  • what ARE they drinkING?

  • all of that isNow

  • because you havebe + verb+ ING

  • Like before withHabit

  • you need to start with a person to explain this

  • “I”, ”you”, ”they”, orheandshe

  • withNowyou have your person

  • then you needbeokay

  • now, “beis a special verb in English

  • it changes a lot, so for example

  • if you have ”I”

  • I… am

  • youare

  • Weare

  • theyare

  • and then we havehe”, “sheand 'it

  • sohebecomesis

  • Heis

  • Sheis

  • Itis

  • OK, so we have "person" we have "be"

  • Now we need a verb withINGadded 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
