"are you doing" should be accepted

I generally go with the present progressive when translating the simple present Italian sentences into English, as it is more natural- HOWEVER, in this case I am guessing that "what are you doing after school" would probably translate into future tense in Italian.

We can use the present for "What are you going to do after school?"

Would you say that in English?

No- you would not say that in English (<-----native English speaker).

Yes, I know; I was asking a rhetorical question to press that point :)

"do you do" == "are you doing", doesn't require present progressive to take the same immediate future translation

"What do you do after the school" was not accepted. There was a 'la' in the sentence. Was my translation correct ?

Does that make sense in English to you?

I'm getting entangled in what I think is right and what I think will be accepted. Need to clarify it for myself. Thanks for the reply.
