Difference between 在 and 着
Hello! I would love to know the difference between these two words, cause both of them are used to express actions in progress/continuous actions. The only difference I am aware is the fact 在 is placed before the verb, whereas 着 is after the verb.

在 is used for an action, like "I am studying Chinese", while 着 is for a status, like "the door is open".

To be frank, you don't need to differentiate them cause we Chinese don't do that either. 着is more like a emotional words I think.
