Grammar Genius: Present Simple vs Present Continuous

Hamilton House ELT has a more than interesting collection of videos on their YouTube channel.

On this video Básico 1 and Básico 2 students can revise the difference between present simple for habitual actions and present continous for actions we are doing now.

The video also shows some examples of stative verbs, [verbs that never take the present continuous form]: love, like, hate.

Finally, we can also see the use of present continuous to talk about fixed future plans (my cousing is coming; he's only staying for dinner; I'm staying for a week).

You can read the transcript here.
