asseoir in present continious

It's said "Je suis assis entre Léa et Tim" above.

Firstly; Is there a present continuous form in french?

And why do we use "être" in this sentence?

Hi Murat,

Je m'assois /Je m'assieds is the present form or I am sitting in French. 

Je suis assis ... is I am sat/seated between Lea and Tim ( more the result of sitting down) 

Hope this helps!

No present continuous in French as far as I know. It’s a tense that only exists in English 

asseoir in present continious

It's said "Je suis assis entre Léa et Tim" above.
