Hi,
I've recently read the following sentence:

" are you finished with school already ?"

I would have said : " have you finished with school already?"

Please, can you tell me which is the correct sentence?
Thanks

"Are you finished with school already?" - Correct

"Have you finished with school already?" - Incorrect

But your sentence was almost correct. To make the sentence correct, you just need to remove the "with"

"Have you finished school already?" - Correct
