Jacob and Matt are studying English online together. Today they're working on Lesson Eight in the Blue Level. This lesson is about the present continuous tense. Jacob is using the keyboard and Matt is writing down the answers to the questions that they see on the screen.

There are fourteen computers in the classroom, but there are thirty students, so they're sharing the same computer. They like to work together because they're friends.

Jacob is wearing a blue shirt today. He's also wearing a watch. Matt is wearing a purple t-shirt. They're both wearing jeans. They like to wear casual clothes to school. It's the way most kids dress for school in the United States.
