Use of the wrong tense

The continuous form of the tense misused.

Don’t say: I’m understanding the lesson now.

ΓΌ Say: I understand the lesson now.

As a rule, verbs denoting a state rather than an act have no continuous forms, like understand, know believe, like, love, belong, prefer, consist, mean, hear, see, etc.
