We are always going someplace, geographically, or online, or in one's mind. Where am I going? Directly back to my work for this lesson!
This is the first lesson in Real English® which concentrates on a verb structure beyond is and are. We succeeded in showing how useful those two little forms of "be" truly are, in a variety of useful situations, right up to this lesson.
We have included a few other verb tenses in lesson 1 to 19, but they are very limited, serving as introductions to the rest of the lessons which begin here, with the simplest expression of the Present Continuous tense (or the Present Progressive if you prefer): Where are you going? Not to be confused with "going to do" of course, which is featured in the intermediate section.
