I was finished or I finished
Please help explain the following:
1. I was finished with primary school ten years ago.
2. I finished with university education in my country.
Are they grammatically correct? Do they both mean graduated from school?
Re: I was finished or I finished
'I was finished with' suggests that the person gave up to me, that they decided to leave because they had had enough, not through completion. so I would say:
1. I finished primary school ten years ago.
2. I finished university education in my country.
