Always + Present Continuous
She's always complaining about the weather! always + doing something
Adverbs of frequency usually indicate sentences with the present simple:
- I often see my friends at the weekend.
- I never go to the cinema.
- I always do my homework.
However, "always" can be used with the present continuous when something happens more often than you think it should:
- She's always complaining about the weather.
- He's always telling me what to do.
It usually means you are not happy about the situation but not always:
- Rachael's always buying little gifts for people.
- They're always coming up with new ideas.
You can use other words which mean the same as always:
