Watch this video in which the Simpsons explain the use of the present continuous.
After that, prepare these activities:
1)Look for similar videos in youtube where the use of the simple present is explained. Add them to your favourites and then show them to your classmates.
2) Make your own video to show the way we use either the Present continuous or the simple present, then upload your video to youtube and embed it to this blog.


The English Holly (Ilex aquifolium) in Spanish "el Acebo" is the symbol of our high school.
The English department will devote this blog to promote the study of the English language among the students of our high school.
We want you all to use it as a means of publishing your writings and projects of English.
Welcome to the English Holly, welcome to your blog.
