You said that "French has no present continuous tense" so what about "être en train de"?
This question relates to:French lesson "Faire de, jouer à : talking about leisure activities"
Well, "être en train de..." isn't a tense per se. Rather, it is a construction whose use parallels the present continuous tense in English. But simple present tense in French can also be translated as present continuous in English, depending on circumstances.
