It's a very useful verb. It can be used as freddo says to indicate finished i.e finished doing something,a meeting, a game or a picture or used with con i.e "acabar con" finish with something or put an end to something i.e "hay que acabar con discriminaciones" or you can have "acabar de" for a recent action i.e somebody asks you do you want something to eat "te gustaria algo de comer"? You could reply "no gracias acabo de comer" or "acaba de salir" he/she has just gone out. Bee
