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:

  • continually
  • forever
  • endlessly

Can you think of any sentences with always + doing something?

Hello from sunny Sri Lanka! My name's Darren, I'm originally from Portsmouth, UK and I've been teaching English as a foreign language for 12 years. I started in Prague, CZ, teaching business English and then Cambridge Exams PET/FCE. I then moved back to the UK to train international academic students for their IELTS exam. I'm currently teaching in Colombo, Sri Lanka and I would love to hear from you if you would like to learn or improve your English language skills.
