    at work

    1 Are you at work now?
    2 Are you being at work now?
    3 Are you working now?

    Are they all correct? If so, in which situations should one or the others be used?

    Re: at work

    1. This is fine. Are you in the office? Are you at the place you usually work?
    2. This is not correct.
    3. This asks about what you're doing, not where you are. I worked from home yesterday. I was working. If someone had texted me to go to lunch, I may have replied "I'm working now."
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
