Present Tense Exercise 16

Directions: Fill in the spaces with the correct form of the verb in present progressive tense.

Note: In this exercise, nouns (Tom, Amy, Daniel, etc.) are used in place of pronouns (I / You / We / They / He / She / It). So, it is a good idea to think about which pronoun you could use instead of each noun. After you know what pronoun replaces the noun, use what you have learned in exercises 14 and 15 to conjugate the verbs correctly.

Example: I (listen) am listening to music now.
Example: You / We / They (listen) are listening to music now.
Example: He / She / It (listen) is listening to music now.

1) Jason (listen) to music now.

2) I (talk) now.

3) Erin and Jessica (make) a cake right now.

4) Shhh...be quiet! The teacher (speak) now!

5) Marcos and I (study) English now.

6) Are Daniel and James playing football this year? No, they (play) soccer.

7) Emily (eat) breakfast now.

8) My car (make) strange noises. I need to get it checked out.

9) Mr. Cooper: Hello. Can I talk to Andrew?
    Bob: No, he (sleep) right now. Can I take a message?

10) Jennifer: Is Rosa coming to the park with us?
       Yoko: No, she (work) today.
      Jennifer: Oh, poor girl!
