The simple present tense is used to describe actions which happen regularly (for example, every day or every week.)
Example: I go to school every day. ('every day' is a habit.)
The present continuous tense is used to describe something which is going on right now (but it will stop in the future.)
Example: It is raining outside. (the rain is temporary, and will most likely stop soon.)
In your example, "I _______ English at evening classes this year." - 'this year' is a temporary state, therefore present continuous is used.
