13 水 Lesson48 進行形の持つ意味
Hey, everyone. This is Rosa Akino. We have another great lesson plans for you all today. Let’s have some fun.
Hi, everyone. I’m Chris McVay. It’s a real pleasure to be with you again today.
The bus was stopping. 止まっていた？ 止まりかけ
Chris and Rosa, was the bus moving or not?
Of course, it was moving.
Yeah, of course. You have to imagine the bus slowing down, slowing down, slowing down before it comes to stop, right?
Chris, Rosa, what is the impression of this sentence, “I am living in Miami.” compared with “I live in Miami.”
Well, first of all, let’s look at “I am living in Miami.” Here, the impression is that the person is living in Miami for a specific period time. It’s not permanent. Rosa?
That’s right. So “I’m living in Miami” is “I’m living in Miami right now.”, but I don’t know about later.
Whereas, “I live in Miami.” kind of, has a permanent nuance.
Huh, Rosa is just like Mary, constantly criticizing.
No, I’m not. You should be nicer to me. You’re very mean.
You see, she’s criticizing again.
