Lesson 12: Different uses of the present continuous

The present continuous is normally used to describe an action that is currently going on. However, it is also possible to use the present continuous to describe what you (or someone else) intends to do in the future, as long as you use a word that specifies the time, such as tomorrow.

They are coming tomorrow. Yarın geliyor(lar).
Tomorrow I am working. Yarın çalışıyorum.

Moreover, the present continuous can be used to describe things that happen routinely, as long as the sentence contains a word that specifies the fact that it is happening routinely, such as always.

You are working every day. (Sen) her gün çalışıyorsun.
He always farts. (O) her zaman osuruyor.
