Glad to help! The Italian present continuous has the upside that (once you get the hang of how to conjugate it lol) you only use it for present actions that are happening when you're talking. Unlike English it never connotates a planned future action, so there's no confusion :)
''He eats" is used for general time (may use ''often, usually, always etc) "He is eating.'' Is for right mow when I am speaking. ''He usually eats at home but today he is eating in a restaurant." Or for very s oon we can say : " They are coming in five minutes.'' For Italian similar tense see Emilee84 this page. /
