"Stem-vowel changing verbs and Present Progressive"

Hard verbage, feel like I'm swimming, getting lost in class. Examples are, "Si pienso mucho, entiendo la leccion." Si tú piensas mucho, entiendes la lección." I am having problems understanding present-future tense verbs with stem vowel changes such as jugar, almorzar,dormir, encontrar, poder, volver.
Also anyone out there studying present progressive verbs like leyendo, trayendo, diciendo, pidiendo and so on?Examples, "Normalmente,Ileana almuerza en casa con sus padres. Pero en este momento está almorzando con sus amigos Luis y Tomás en el Café Tico." If you are lets help each other out !Esta bien,amigo(a)!

When you use present progressive you use it very similar to the way you would do in english. Está comiendo, indicates she has the fork in her hand, so she's in the process of eating. When we use this verb form in a sentence, we usually present a different verb that will cut or stop the action. Mientras estoy viendo televisión, el niño grita mucho. The second present tense cuts the action in progress. I hope this helps you understand better the idea of present progressive.
