I'm confused about how to form the present continuous tense for the verb sentar.
I want to say The boys are sitting describing the continuous action of sitting, what they are doing right now at this present moment.
First I thought:
Los niños están sentados. - The boys are sitting.
But as sentado is an adjective, this is really describing a state of being seated, not a continuous action.
Then I thought:
Los niños se están sentando. - The boys are sitting down.
But this is describing the action of moving from a previous state to a state of being seated. It doesn't describe the action of continuously sitting.
