Present Continious Tense

Postby johnyork » Mon Feb 11, 2013 5:15 am

The sentense, "ਮੈਂ ਚੀਨੀ ਭਾਸ਼ਾ ਸਿੱਖਦਾ ਹਾਂ।" is written in "present simple tense". In the aforementioned sentence, I am trying to say, "I learn Chinese language".

What is the proper way to write that sentence in "present continous tense" (I am "learning" Chinese language).

I don't have punjabi fonts but here is how it will go:

You wrote: "Main chini bhasha sikhda han."

The sentence you seek is: "Main chini bhasha sikh riha han."

Replace sikhda or "learn" with sikh riha or "learning".
