Present simple and Present continuous: repeated actions

Present simple and Present continuous: repeated actions
Использование настоящего простого и настоящего продолженного времен при описании повторяющихся действий
1) Present continuous можно использовать при описании действий, повторяющихся в момент речи или настоящий период времени.

Why are you jumping up and down? — Ты что прыгаешь?

I'm going to a lot of parties these days — Я сейчас часто хожу на вечеринки.

2) Если повторяющееся событие или привычное действие не привязаны к настоящему периоду времени или моменту речи, используется Present simple.

Every morning I get up at 7 o'clock. — Каждое утро я встаю в 7 часов.

3) Если важно подчеркнуть, что некоторое событие происходит часто, но каждый раз является незапланированным или неожиданным, можно использовать Present continuous с такими наречиями как always, constantly, continually, forever.

He is forever losing things — Он вечно теряет вещи.

I'm always meeting Mrs Smith in the supermarket — Я всегда встречаю миссис Смит в супермаркете (незапланированное неожиданное событие).

He is always smiling — Он всегда улыбается.

4) И Present simple, и Present continuous можно использовать при описании события, происходящего регулярно в одно и то же время (ср. разницу между примерами ниже).

We usually have breakfast at 9.00 — Мы обычно завтракаем в 9.00 (речь идет о распорядке дня, расписании).

We are usually having breakfast at 9.00 so you can drop in then — Мы обычно завтракаем в 9.00, так что ты можешь забежать к нам в это время.
