Hi This is my first post, so I apologise if this has already been asked. I have a basic question. In English (as far as I know) we can use two present tenses: A basic example: I play tennis I am playing tennis Obviously these have quite different meanings as the former is more of a general statement whereas the latter is time specific (i.e. literally playing tennis) But in German, I believe the only way you could say this is: Ich spiele Tennis So my question is this: if there is only one present tense in German, how do they differentiate between a general statement and what is literally happening? Of course it's mostly about context but in cases where context is not applicable what would you say? Ich spiele jetzt Tennis? I understand this isn't a massive issue but it's been bugging me for a while now. Thanks!
