What's the difference between "slept" and "are sleeping"


In the right context one might translate Qong as "are sleeping". Given the right context one might translate QongtaH as "slept". However, since Duolingo doesn't include context it is very difficult to teach those differences in Duolingo. Thus this Duolingo course only uses the more standard translations of Qong as "sleep/slept/will sleep" and QongtaH as "are sleeping/were sleeping/will be sleeping".
