I've got a problem with these constructs. The original sentence looks like the following:
I hear you've got a new job. How do you get on?
Actually, the sentence I wrote above contains an error. The correct sentence is:
I hear you've got a new job. How are you getting on?
So, I don't understand why we have to use the present continuous instead present simple.
As far as I know we use present continuous tense for the temporary situations or the situations that happen at the time of speaking. Could anyone explain this situation in great detail?
