How to use "Continuous tense" in context?

One of the most confusing aspects of English grammar is the continuous tense. continuous tense refers to a periodic action that is ongoing, rather than a single, discrete occurrence.

For example, you might say "I am playing football" to describe your ongoing activity of playing football. Alternatively, you might say "I played football yesterday" to describe a one time event.

The continuous tense is important in certain situations, such as when you are reporting on an ongoing event. In this example, you would use the continuous tense to describe what happened over the course of the day.

However, the continuous tense is not always necessary.
