The present continuous is often taught as something happening now, but it may be a repeated event or an interrupted process that takes place in a period of time including now. The time of the sequence may include now, even if the actual action or event is not currently occurring.

  • He is reading a book.
    • (He is in the process of reading it, but is not necessarily reading at this moment.)

The Present Continuous can be used to describe a process of change, which is common with verbs such as increase, decrease, become, develop, expand, get, and grow. This can demonstrate a general change:

  • Unemployment is rising.
  • The weather is getting warmer.
