Thank you, Emma! I really appreciate these advanced lessons. Got 10 correct out of 10)) The Russian language has similar rules for interrupting. It is possible but you should be polite and attentive to people.

Why “I’m almost finished”? Why not “I almost finish”?

Tuesday, November 5th 2019

    Hi Astri, I think, the word “finished” is here an adjective, not past participle of the verb finish. You might look it up in a good dictionary. And your sentence “I almost finish” has no meaning” in this Emmas´s video.

Hi Emma,

thanks for your nice lesson many times.

I´d like to ask a question about the sentence (9:01) : I´m almost finished my point.

What grammar is it ?

Shouldn´t it be :

I´ve almost finished my point. (present perfect)

OR

I´m almost finished with my point. (be + adjective finished + prep.with).

Thank you for your answer.

Hello, Dear Ms. Emma. I really appreciate everything you have been teaching on the EngVid website.

You introduced two ways to request from a person (who has interrupted us while we were talking) to let us continue keeping talking. The second one was “I am almost finished my point”

I wonder why passive tense should be used to show our willingness. Are there any grammatical reasons? And one thing else, Could you translate the above-recommended sentence in English, please?

Thank you in advance. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
Best Wishes.
