Present Continuous for Future
POR RRHH Digital, 00:05 - 20 de Septiembre del 2018

When you make a planned arrangement in tour schedule and you have confirmation it will happen, you should use the present continuous. The present continuous demonstrates certainty and planning for things such as: meetings, appointments, flights, dinners and important social events.

- I’m working on Monday.
- She’s coming here at 9:45 a.m.
- They’re meeting next week.
- I’m seeing the doctor this morning.
- I`m flying to London on Monday.
- I’m going to charity dinner next month.

Questions can also be made using this format. The most common one is:

What are you doing…? Followed by a specific time in the future such as after, later, tonight, tomorrow, etc.
- What are you doing after your class?
- What are you doing later?
- What are you doing tomorrow night?
- What are you doing after lunch?

*NOTICE how the contractions are used with the verb TO BE.

IMPORTANT: Going to + infinitive is also used to talk about the future. The only difference is that there is no concrete confirmation (such as a plane ticket, or diary entry). For example:

- I`m going to have dinner with my parents after I see you.
- I’m going to call her to confirm.
- They’re going to visit us next month.
