In English, we have the Simple present tense.
"The boy eats ice cream.** this is a general statement e.g. "The boy eats ice cream every Saturday." "The girl eats cake but the boy eats ice cream." etc
And the Present Continuous tense "The boy is eating ice cream." which means it is happening now at the moment I am speaking.
In Greek, there is only one way to say it so you can use either of the English versions to translate it.
