Present continuous

Present continuous

I don't see any example with the present continuous, but I guess it's the same here as it is with other verbs, correct? "I'm getting up to go to work" can be translated to "Je me lève pour aller au travail"?

Bonjour David, The short answer is yes, whether the verb is regular or reflexive. Here is an excerpt from the lesson that covers this: Notice that in French you use Le Présent to describe actions that are ongoing in the present, whereas in English we would use the Present Continuous tense for these actions (as opposed to the Present Tense). Note: There is no equivalent of the Present Continuous tense in French, so you cannot, for example, translate 'I am working' as "Je suis travaillant". Use "je travaille". --- the link for the lesson follows: Using Le Présent for ongoing actions where English uses Present Continuous Bonne chance.
Merci beaucoup, RON. I saw afterwards that the lesson about reflexive verbs contains multiple examples of (english) Present Continuous. I'll leave here a link to that lesson as well: Conjugate reflexive verbs in Le Présent (present tense)
