Subject + infinite (without to)
Subject + do/does + not + main verb in the infinitive way

Do/Does + subject + verb in the infinitive way

Does he play tennis?
– Use the present continuous for actions in progress at the time of speaking or the future arrangements.
Be + Verb + -ing

I´m going to the café.
Action and Non-action verbs
– Verbs which describe actions can be used in the present simple or continuous;
– Verbs which describe states or feelings aren´t normally used in the present continuous.
– Use the present perfect for the actions that start in the past and still happening at the moment.
Subject + Have/Has + main verb in the participle way + complement

Jon has already visited New York.
Subject + Have/Has + Not + main verb in the participle way + complement

Has he just arrived at the airport?
Present perfect continuous
– Use the present perfect continuous with for and since with action verbs
– Use the present perfect continuous for actions which have been going on very recently. They have usually just stopped.
Subject + have + verb to be in the present perfect way + main verb + -ing
Nicholas has been doing his homework for hours!
Subject + had + verb to be in the present perfect way + main verb + -ing
