Simple Present, Present Continuous, Frequency

I'm trying to teach English online. For a little more about why, click here.

=====

Q1: What are you doing?

A1: I'm _____ing ____.

Q2: Do you _____ often?

A2: No I don't. (Yes, I do.)

Q3: How often do you ____?

A3: I _____ all the time.

I _____ (number) times a week.

I _____ (number) times a day.

=====

In every answer (except A1), you should add a verb in the dictionary form. For A1 you should use a verb with ~ing on the end.

For A3 I have included three possible answers.

If you're an English learner, click 'reply' and try to answer these questions. You can see my answers at the bottom of this post. Try to write longer answers if you're a high level learner.

If you're not an English learner, click 'reply', answer the questions and thanks for your help! The more material learners can get exposed to the better. And try to make answers truthful; really, what are you doing now?

Click "reply" to see my answer, and/or to write your own answer.

EDIT: I forgot to mention that in Q3, the object should be plural.

A1: I'm drinking coffee.

I'm at a coffee shop, working. I'm lucky that I can work from a coffee shop!

A2: Yes, I do.

A3: I drink coffee daily. Sometimes twice a day.

I have a cup every morning. If I don't I can't wake up.

I have a cup when I come to a coffee shop. I come to coffee shops like this one only to use my computer, but they don't let you unless you buy something.

A1: I'm writing a blog entry about Japanese music in English, Chinese and Japanese.

A2: Yup.

A3: I write an entry at least once a day. It's a good way to practice my writing skills in other languages. It's also a good way to pass time while I wait for my visa!
