Romanian Grammar - Verbs - Indicative Mood - Present Tense

How to translate Present Simple and Present Continuous in Romanian

English uses two different times to mark the difference between what is happening right now and what usually takes place every day by using Present simple and Present continuous.

Unlike English, Romanian uses only one tense the Romanian Present to express both what is happening now and in general or repeatedly.

For example:

English Present Simple Romanian Present
I drink water every day Eu beau apă în fiecare zi
English Present Continuous Romanian Present
I'm drinking water now Eu beau apă acum

This is an essential difference between English and Romanian verbs: Romanian does not have a specific continuous form.
