Hi

We use present simple with adverbials such as often always frequently etc.

She always helps the poor.
She always carries a book when she travels.
We always drive carefully.

I remember learning of the use of present progressive with always for actions that we do not like.

She is always interfering in my work.
This vehicle is always giving me trouble.
They are always calling us on weekends when we want to rest.

My question: Do we use present progressive even for actions that we like; that is,can we say "She is always helping the poor"?
+0
We can.

Hi!

In my opinion, We can't use Present Progressive with "always" for action that We "like" because We use the Present Progressive for actions that We "dont like" or to talk about an annoying habits.


That's what I have learned. Sorry if I'm wrong.


Many Thanks

Hello, in my opinion present progressive use for habits that are not regular, but that happen very often. Use the present progressive in this way to talk about an annoying habit (bad habit). We can't use present progressive for actions that we like.
Thank you, that is what I've learned. Emotion: smile

Hi .. I think you can't use present progressive for that action because its only use to bad habits / action . So you need to use the present simple for action that we like
