present or present cont' tense

Post by Kyledino » Fri Apr 04, 2014 7:27 am

"every day" - present tense
"at this time" - present continuous tense

With expressions "at this time every day" or "every day at this time" (which time expression is better or more natural?), what tense should be used, present or present continuous?

Thank you.

Both possible, but present simple more likely.
