I was wondering - when using "while" usually the "ing" form of a verb follows but what if the sentence continues?
While his friends are enjoying (1. ing) their vacation at the beach he finally gets his snow.
While his friends are enjoying (1. ing) their vacation at the beach he is finally getting (2. ing) his snow.
(I know it's a bit of "slang" and colloquial but the guy im describing was actually waiting for the snow to fall because it didnt happen until the end of January)
Or even more simple:
While his friends are sleeping he watches TV
While his friends are sleeping he's watching TV
Thanks for the help!
