    Be and Continuous Tenses

    The verb be can be an auxiliary verb (Marie is learning English) or a main verb (Marie is French). On this page we look at the verb be as a main verb.

    Usually we use simple tenses with the verb be as a main verb.

    For example, we say:

    * London is the capital of the UK.
    (not London is being the capital of the UK.)
    * Is she beautiful?
    (not Is she being beautiful?)
    * Were you late?
    (not Were you being late?)

    Sometimes, however, we can use the verb be with a continuous tense. This is when the real sense of the verb be is "act" or "behave". Also, of course, the action is temporary.

    Compare the examples in the table below:



    Notice that we also make a difference between "to be sick" and "to be being sick":

    * She is sick (= she is not well)
    * She is being sick (= she is vomiting)

    NOTE:
