In English, we use the progressive tense very commonly, and it’s just as useful in Korean. The progressive tense is used any time you want to indicate that an action or state is ongoing. For example:
I’m going to the store.
He is eating an apple.
Of course, it can be used in more than just the present tense. We also have past progressive:
I was doing my homework.
He was reading a book.
And we have future progressive as well:
I will be cooking dinner.
They will be taking a test.
So how do we make these kinds of sentences in Korean? There are a few simple ways.
