New words (for me) in English and queries regarding verb tenses
I decided to write on the blog the new words and expressions that I learn in English and, if I have time, to form sentences with them so that I can remember them.
mostly as good as gold
naughty neither do I
I need to know why we use in English 2 tenses for verbs if they express the same type of action. I will give two examples, because they show more clearly what I want to find out.
- We all live in Dundee, except my sister; she’s 19 and is studying at university.
we live and she studying
2. Even when I lose I winning.
I lose and I winning
Can someone to explain me why we don’t use “we live” and “she studies” or “we are living” and “she is studying”?
