    Work till late. Is this the right way of saying it?

    1) I have to work till late again tonight.
    2) I work till very late every Friday.

    They are OK. The "till" is not really necessary though.

    Also, work late means work after normal working hours, but not necessarily until late a night. Work till late would always mean working into the night for me.
