Can anyone explain how you make the difference between, for instance, "do you drink wine" (in general) and "are you drinking the wine" (right now)? I can't seem to get a grasp on how to translate the present progressive (-ing). Thank you in advance!
From a quick Google search, I found there is no difference between present progressive and present continuous. And as someone who took Spanish in high school, that is very pleasant news to me.
I was also confused, but I think the use of a definite article 'the' wine, would suggest it is right now.
I looked at the answer. Both are excepted. I dont think the specific time like now or in general matters because its still the present.
You can have "Do you drink wine?" (I put this) and "Are you drinking wine?"
I don't drink… wine.
It's always super difficult to hear the -en ending >:/
Hei, can you hear " vinen" instead of " vin" in the voice record?
I do. It sounds more like "vin'n" actually.
Because that's how you need to say that...
How do you writhe it :vinen
How do you say that :vin'n
but wine is uncountable right?
It's uncountable, but that doesn't mean it can't be made definite.
right i'm just confirming
