I believe "Are you done" may be acceptable in AmE, but in BrE "Have you done..." is preferable. You may want to wait for an AmE speaker's opinion on that, though. "I ain't done yet" is slang in both, but you will hear it a lot in films and on TV.

When you are doing your homework and you say : "I am done with my homework lets have some fun" to your friend after the completion of the homework. What does it mean? Does it nessarily mean that you will not do any sort of further homeworks in your rest of the life?  

PaulQ

"I am done (adjective) with X" usually means "I have had enough of X"; "I will have no more dealings with X"; "I reject X".  

What does the above sentence mean in the context.

"I am done with my home work" means "I have completed the homework that has been assigned to me". It says nothing about completing or not completing any future homework.

In AE (at least where I'm from), "are you done?" means "have you finished?"--and if I use this phrase, it implies that I know or believe that you've started. If I wanted to talk to you 15 minutes ago but you told me to go away because you were in the middle of your homework, I'd ask you (now, 15 minutes later), "Are you done with your homework?" (If I'm your mom and I'm checking up on you, I'd ask, "Have you done your homework?") If I want to use the scissors that are on the table with a pile of cut things that you have obviously been working on, I'd say, "Are you done using the scissors?" "I ain't done yet" would be a NONSTANDARD response to a question or request like "Can I use the scissors now?" or "Please take your dishes to the kitchen." or "We need to leave soon."  

Sheikhbutt said: It doesnot nessarily mean I will not do any further homework assignment that I will receive in coming futute. It simply indicates the completion of given assignment.Right? Click to expand...
DonnyB said: That's right, yes. It doesn't suggest to me that you have no intention of ever doing any homework again. Click to expand...
kentix said: 'I ain't done yet.' Although it's possible to say that I don't expect to hear it in my normal life, especially in relation to something like school work. I'd expect to hear - yes, no, almost, not all of it, most of it, I'm going to do it later. And...I forgot. Click to expand...
Sheikhbutt said: Then what does it suggest you? Click to expand...
DonnyB said: I'd interpret "I am done with my homework" as meaning "I've finished my homework" , but it's not the way most BE-speaking pupils would say it. Click to expand...

kentix said: You're eating dinner and you say, "I'm done with with my soup." Is it reasonable to think that means "I'll never eat soup again for the rest of my life"? Click to expand...

It means I'm done eating my soup. There is no more left in the bowl.  

It simply mean what I was asking in the case of homework. I am done with my home work is an alternative of saying I have completed homework. But I got confuse in post #11.

I am done with soup: Apply that you no more like soup and you are in mood of eating if you ever get chance to eat it. I am done with my soup: The soup which I was eating is finished now and it doesnot apply to whether you will eat or not in future.Right? And please reply to my post #36 also.

kentix said: That helps a lot in understanding your question. Thanks. This is a different meaning. I am done with soup. - I am no longer interested in eating soup anymore at all. I am done with my soup. - My bowl is empty. I have eaten all the soup that was in my bowl. In the first sentence, it doesn't say my soup, the soup, his soup, our soup. It just says "soup" so it stands for all soup. Click to expand...
Sheikhbutt said: I am done with the soup: can also mean you have eaten all your soup or you are no more interested in eating the specific soup that you are eating, it does not apply to the soup in general. That you want eat any soup again, right? Click to expand...
