Compare & Conrtast!
English uses three sets if forms to talk about the present: (1) the simple present (they speak), (2) the present progressive (they are speaking), and (3) the emphatic present (they do speak). IN SPANISH, the simple present tense can be used in all three cases.
Ellos hablan en la clase.
They speak in class.

They are speaking in class.

They do speak in class.
In Spanish and in English, the present tense is also sometimes used to express future action!
Maria llega manana.
Maria arrives tomorrow.

Maria will arrive tomorrow.

Maria is arriving tomorrow.
Atencion!
UNLESS referring to a person, the Spanish verbs buscar, eschuchar, esperar, and mirar DO NOT need to be followed by prepositions (for, to, at, etc.) as they do in English!
Ella busca el libro. She looks for the book.

Esperamos el autobus. We wait for the bus.

Escucho la musica. I listen to the music.

Miras la mesa. You look at the table.
