Hi evrybody,
Some months ago someone provided a website in which children children tell stories. I jotted down the website but I can ´t find it now. Does anyone remember the web? It was fantastic cos there were videos of children telling stories in an entertaining way.
On the other hand, do you know a good short video about environmental problems for my FCE students?
When a student finishes his / her homework in class, which sentence should (s)he say? Some say "Finish" but I have always correct them "I ´ve finished (cos it is a recently completed action). However, yesterday I was flicking through a book and I came across this expression for the same situation: "I ´m finished". Is it right? As far as I know, I thought this expression is used when the teacher thinks students should have finished their homework by then, as in "Are you finished?".
Thanks in advance.

Both ´I have finished ´ and ´I am/I ´m finished ´ are commonly said in the UK.
