Hello Sarvari. On a language learning course what does "u r" mean? Unilateral Racist? Unspeakable Right? Unstoppable Rapids? Chemical element U, Uranium and R, an unattached element? Unaccompanied Respondent in a divorce case? Unsolvable Rakeness? Un Requieted? Unusable Rags? Unquestionable Riches? Un Rammed (castrated male sheep) Un Roofed (Wet bedrooms)? Un Ranked (Private in an army) Or in a language learning course, could "U R" by any stretch of the imagination be just symbols for "You Are" which doesn't take too long to type? Just curious. (Your post is otherwise accurate and helpful.))
@7Laymanc Small question, big answer.... You are correct in your understanding and yes, they are both present tense. However "She eats strawberries" means that she ALWAYS will, whenever they are available. But "She is eating strawberries" means that she is doing so just now, only. Note: Duo's lesson's tasks are almost all out of any context and this stretches one's comprehension. So at this stage in the course, most verbs in any task can be translated to (Eg) eats or the continuous present "....is eating"' .
