NB: Do not use any Ving forms (going, living, staying, etc) if the action is not happening when you are mentioning this. Suppose you are preparing for an exam tomorrow and suddenly your phone rings! It is your dear one. You pick the call and say – “Hey, I will call you later. I am attending class now.”
- Why not “I attend a class now?”
- Why “I am + Ving”?
Use Ving forms only is that action is happening as you talk about that or write about that!
Proceed to the tasks.
