Thanks for this; it answers a question I had while still going through the simple present tense in Spanish. In English, if I use the simple present, for example, "I study", it means I do it habitually. Does the simple present in Spanish mean the same thing? Does "Yo como huevos" mean I eat eggs habitually/usually? When do the simple present in Spanish and the present progressive in English correspond in meaning, if ever?

The Progressive tense is used far less frequently in Spanish than in English, and do not use them unless you are portraying an action as truly being in progress.
