    Re: Present Simple or Progressive?

    Hi, here is 'The French',

    English teachers don't think like you. With verbs like think you can't see the action, so you can't use the continuous form.

    I believe that the continuous form it's better to emphasis the progression of the act.

    Perhaps an American and an English teachers can settle this grammar point.

    Have a nice day, 'Le Franšais'.

    Re: Present Simple or Progressive?

    This is very old topic but then I want to write somethings.
    must use 'Think' because this is a model.

    Re: Present Simple or Progressive?

    The right sentence is:

    "I think the film is good"

    because the verb think is a non-action verb.

    I'm thinking it's no good idea (currentrly the accion no happened, it could happen in the future)

    is it OK?

    than you
