The present continues tense is formed in this way:
Present tense form of the verb ‘to be’ + base form of verb + ing
The following verbs do not usually take the continues tense:
Believe, hear, own, belong, know, see, contain, like, smell
We use the present continues tense to show that an action is going on at the time of speaking or writing or is planned for the future
