TE IMASU FORM While the regular masu form is used for an activity that is habitual or an activity that will occur in the future, the te imasu form is used to describe an event that is happening currently. It functions like the addition of a helping verb in English. Conjugating the te imasu form is pretty self-explanatory; just conjugate the verb’s te form and add imasu. Examples: Watashi wa Nihongo (w)o benkyou shite imasu. (I am studying Japanese.) Watashi wa kowai eiga (w)o mite imasu. (I am watching a scary movie.) Watashi wa nihon no kaisha ni tsutomete imasu. (I am working at a Japanese company.) This form can also be used to ask what a person is currently doing. Yamaguchi san wa nani (w)o shite imasu ka? (What is Mr. Yamaguchi doing?) The te imasu form is also used when discussing events that happened in the past and are still in effect, such as marriage. Onee san wa kekkon shimashita. (My older sister was married) -> Onee san wa kekkon shite imasu. (My older sister is married.) Mary san wa yasemashita. (Mary lost weight) -> Mary san wa yasete imasu. (Mary is thin.)
