Hello!

Just call me Mon. All my friends and students do.

I'm an English teacher. Have been one for about 10 years now as a matter of fact; mostly to Japanese and Koreans.

I also have online friends in Europe, South America, America, China and Russia. This is because I keep an ESL-learning Blog.

If you can't catch me here, you can find me there: http://coolelf.net

See ya around!

You're right, @Cameron. And some outside our generation might not get the reference mnn.com/earth-matters/space/stories/…

Thanks for that, StoneyB. I had a delayed look at the link, and I guess the expression the OP's looking for is more likely positive

comment Present continuous to discuss action's frequency
I think the exercise is suitable for beginner students. For more advanced students, the question can be improved or not used altogether, like @nohat said. It becomes a matter of descriptive and prescriptive grammar
