English to Spanish translations [Non-PRO]
English term or phrase: Present progressive
I thought the only way to say this was 'present progresivo' but someone just informed me that 'presente durativo' is another possibility. Any clarification?

Thank you.

Presente Continuo


Explanation:
This would just be a translation for the English verb tense, since Present Progressive does not have an equivalent tense in Spanish.
Most spanish translated books for teaching english have for ever used Presente Continuo, not Presente Progresivo.
