It says verbal structure. Does this mean that this is only used in spoken Spanish?
Also, I thought that we used the present perfect for actions that have just happened?
1] written and spoken verbal structure
2] this structure is specifically used for something that has just happened i.e to express an immediate action. For example - I have just answered your questions!
"Verbal" doesn't mean "spoken" in this context, it means that it contains a verb.
With "verbal" here we refer to its grammatical meaning "containing a verb" (verbal structure = a structure containing a verb).
When we use this structure "acabar de + infinitive", in Spanish we don't use the perfect tense.
