I am busy

I am / was busy + (verb-ing)

When you are busy you have much to do. The structure I was busy is followed by an –ing form. It is used to talk about activities that keep you occupied.

  • I’m busy working.
  • She’s busy getting ready for work.
  • She’s busy cooking dinner.
  • I’m busy cleaning the house.
  • She’s busy studying for the test.
  • I was busy cooking when the guests arrived.

Instead of an –ing form, we can use with + noun after I’m busy.

  • I’m busy with my studies.
  • I’m busy with work.
  • She’s busy with her kids.
  • She is busy with her projects.
