They are coming here this afternoon. 他们今天下午来这儿。 表示将来的现在进行时除用于转移动词外,也可用于某些非转移动词。如: What are you doing next Sunday? 下星期天你打算干什么? My mother is buying me a bike soon. 我妈妈不久将给我买一辆自行车。 I\'m meeting you after class. 课后我要找你。


偶尔也表示较远的将来。如: When I grow up, I\'m joining the army. 我长大了要参军。 表示将来的现在进行时有时含有\"决心\"的意思,多用于否定结构中。如: I\'m not going there. 我不去那儿了。 I\'m not waiting for him any longer. 我不再等他了。 用这种进行时与对方讲话时可变成命令,不过语气比较温和。如: You\'re staying. 你留下来吧。 You\'re taking part in the sports meeting. 你参加运动会吧。 同一般现在时一样,现在进行时也可用在时间、条件或原因状语从句中表示将来。如: If they are not going, I won\'t go, either. 如果他们不去,我也不去。 When you are passing my way, please drop in. 当你路过我家时,请进来坐坐。
