Use
We use the present continuous to say that we are in the middle of an action.
I'm waiting for the train. (I'm at the station now.)
I'm getting the lunch ready. (I'm in the kitchen now.) I'm waiting means that I am in the
middle of a period of waiting. The wait is not yet over.
We can also use the present continuous when we are in the middle of something but not actually doing it at
the moment of speaking.
/ must get hack to the office. We're working on a new project.
I'm quite busy these days. I'm doing a course at college.
We can use the present continuous when things are changing over a long period. The
number of cars on the road is increasing. The earth is slowly getting warmer.
