"I wear a white coat."
When you use a verb with "Te" form and add an "Iru" it becomes Present Continuous. For example: Hanasu (to speak), hanashimasu (I speak or I'll speak), hanashite imasu (I speak or I'm speaking), 話している (hanashite iru = I'm speaking).
You can use "iru" with many verbs. Can you understand it?
Verb て form + います is like adding ing to a verb. So 着ています would be "I am wearing" and not "i wear"
Can anyone tell me how to type that elongated - on an android keyboard? Its driving me crazy
I thought 着る (きる) was more like "to PUT on" rather than wear. So きている or きています meant "I have put it on and still have it on" in other words "I'm wearing".
