    when you've finished/when you finished/when you finish

    Hi everyone,
    Are all these sentences correct?

    1. When you finished you can go home.
    2. When you've finished you can go home.
    3. When you finish you can go home.
    4. When you're finished you can go home.
    Thank you.

    Re: when you've finished/when you finished/when you finish

    #1 is not.

    (I'd also put a comma after "finished" in each case.)

    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
