The Present Participle(participiul prezent)

The Present Participle (ending in -ing) often corresponds to the Romanian gerunziu. It is also used in the continuous form of verbs. Ex.: Reading a long novel I fell asleep. (Citind...) Walking about the park I was listening to the birds which were singing merrily. The Present Participle is sometimes treated as a noun. In such cases it may be preceded by the definite or the indefinite article or by an adjective. Ex.: The learning of the grammar rules is absolutely necessary. (nvarea...) Building of our school took several months. The solid training of our team helped us win the match We saw a meeting taking place in the market-square. When it used after prepositions it corresponds to a sentence in Romanian: Ex.: M-am gndit s m- duc la un muzeu=I have thought of going to a museum. i mulumesc fiindc m ajui=Thank you for helping me.

The Present Perfect Tense Simple(traducere: am citit, merg) indic anterioritatea fa de prezent
