1C GRAMMAR present simple or present continuous?


A Why are you taking a photo of your guitar?

B I want to sell it on eBay.

A Why? I don’t understand. You play your guitar every day! You love it!

B I am selling my old one because I want to buy a new one.

A Oh, OK.


A Hi. Do you need any help?

B No, thanks. I’m just looking.

A Are you looking for anything in particular?

B Yes, I’m thinking of getting a jacket.

A This is one of our bestsellers. It’s real leather. I have it and I wear it all the time.

B Yes, it’s lovely. Where can I try it on?


A You’re reading a book about modern art! I don’t believe it! You hate modern art!

B I know. But now I need to learn about it.

A Why?

B Because my girlfriend is studying it at college this year and she loves it.

A What’s that picture on the left? Can I see it?

B It’s a woman, and I think she’s walking in a garden…. I don’t really know.

A Let me see… No, she isn’t walking. She’s flying.

B Oh, yes.
