Key Verbs and Aspects
I told you about the past and present tenses in Grammar Activation Pack 1.
I also introduced you to the aspects – simple, continuous, and perfect, and showed you why the three key verbs, do, be, and have, are so important.
In Grammar Activation Packs 2 and 3, I looked at the Present and Past tense of the simple aspect.
In this Grammar Activation Pack, I am going to tell you how the second of the key verbs, be, is used for the continuous aspect, present tense.
The continuous aspect is marked by the auxiliary verb be plus an ing form of a non-finite verb.
There are 5 finite inflected forms of the verb be: am, is, are, and was, were.
You already know that the inflected forms of be, am, is, and are, mark the present tense and that the inflected forms of be, was, and were, mark the past tense.
In this Grammar Activation Pack, I will be looking at the present tense, continuous aspect.
I will look at the past tense, continuous aspect in the next pack.

English Activation Pack Testimonials
Not able to tell you how happy I am with the inversion English Activation Pack. No sooner did I begin the quiz than I began to see a big improvement. I’m hoping to do the CPE in the Autumn, so this is just what I needed.
I couldn’t have asked for more than this in the pick pack. I’m so pleased and I can’t wait for the next one. They are great!
I can’t say enough about the do or make pack. It’s exactly what I’ve been looking for. I won’t make the same mistakes I used to.
A good idea
It’s a very good idea. The whole pack looks nice and has a lot of information inside. I certainly learned some new vocabulary. I will buy some more packs soon. Thank you.
Just what I needed
This is a great way to learn about phrasal verbs as well as idioms. I have been studying English for 10 years, but I have never had such a funny way to learn before. Thank you for your hard work Richard.
The 5Wh activation pack is very best. Thank you much for you help me with English. Now I ask questions well.
This is the fourth English Activation Pack I have bought and it really is the best yet. The conversation simulations are amazingly useful. I can see how different answers get different responses. I can also see how not to ask questions or make complaints. I can’t wait for the next pack.
Being Italian, I always have problems with the h at the beginning of words. This silent letter activation packs is exactly what I needed. I only paid one euro but it is worth much more than I paid. Next time I will pay more because it’s worth every cent. You won’t regret it.
