Re: Verb tenses (continuous, non-continuous)

Just as Greek would never say, "γράψω ένα τραγούδι", so no English speaker would customarily say, "I want to be writing a song".

I've found that the Greek speaker can use both continuous and non-continuous forms even when repetitious behaviour is involved.  For example, Greeks can say both διάβαζα πολλές φορές and διάβασα πολλές φορές.

Να ’στε καλά,
