* The English has a form that does not exist in German. Have a look at these phrases:

1) What are you doing? I am working.
2) What do you do? I work.

These phrases are not the same. The first one means something that happens right this moment. The second one is more in general and does not express any specific time - except that it is present. In German language this distinction does not exist.

Ich arbeite = I am working.
Ich arbeite = I work.
