Present Continuous Tense ?

Posted by calkins March 10, 2008 in the Group General Discussion.

Could someone explain the present continuous tense difference between 在 (zài) and 着 (zhe) in the following two sentences?

 

你在吃什么?

nǐ zài chī shénme?

What are you eating?

 

你吃着什么?

nǐ chī zhe shénme?

What are you eating?

 

Thank you...
