Present Progressive
The present progressive expresses an action that is happening right now.

To form the present progressive use:
 ESTAR + present participle

To form the present participle drop the last two letters of the verb and add:

 Estoy hablando.

Remember irregulares

You only use it for an action that is actually going on at the time of the sentence.
