The present participle is formed by adding the suffix "-ing" to the base form of a verb.
- go — going
- make — making
- see — seeing
Although the form is the same as that of a gerund, the usage differs — the present participle is not used as a noun. Rather, it is a verb in the continuous form.
- I am looking for a good hotel in Berlin.
- John has been trying to contact you for a week.
