    Translation

    Hi!. How is it going?

    "I´m going out ´till late tonight". Does it mean I am going out
    ´till 4,5,6... a.m tonight?

    Maybe there´s another expression to mean that, so...

    help me!. I just translated from Spanish to
    English. But, anyway, if it´s right
    tell me as well. Thanks in advance!


    Jesús.

    Re: Translation

    Hello J.

    These might be more common:

    1. I'm going to stay out late tonight.
    2. I won't be back till late tonight.
    3. I'm going to be late back tonight.

    I would understand "late" here to mean "midnight-ish"; or perhaps 1 o'clock in the morning.

    For 4am, I would say:

    4. I'll be back in the early hours of the morning.
    5. I won't be back till the early hours of tomorrow morning.

    Bye
    MrP
