Tuesday, December 31st 2013

Hi Ronnie,
I would like to ask a question which is not related to this video.
What is the difference between ‘I’m finished.’ and ‘I have finished.’? Can we say ‘Are you finished?’
I’m glad if you could reply. :)
Thanks & Happy New Year!

Tuesday, December 31st 2013

    Hi Sophie. Correct usage is “I have finished.”

    “I am finished” means “I am done for. I am about to die.”

    ‘Are you finished’ is incorrect. Correct usage is ‘Did you finish?’. Thank you.
