Assunto:  Re: what is the explanation
 
Mensagem:  . ____ our work now so we're going out for a drink. Do you want to come? We finished We've finished - Would you choose the perfect present option? What is the explanation to that? (Why didn´t you choose the past simple?) *** In my opinion the right answer is "We've finished " because this is an action that does't have an especific time adverb. You could say "We finished" when you use time adverbs like last, ago, this morning, etc. If I'm wrong, please let me know. Sandra
