Anders: Oj, det är ju så sent redan. Klockan är snart fyra. Den är tio i fyra.Oh, it's so late already. It's almost four o'clock. It's ten to four.
Markus: Ja, det gör väl ingenting. Du har väl inte heller några föreläsningar imorgon.Yes, but that doesn't matter, does it? You have no lectures tomorrow as well, right?
Anders: Jag vet inte. Men lägger jag mig efter klockan tolv kan jag inte sova alls och jag måste läsa sex böcker idag. Helst igår redan.I don't know. But if I go to bed after twelve o'clock I cannot sleep at all and I have to read six books today. Preferably yesterday already.
Markus: Det är lugnt. Bara vi pluggar flitigt nu. Med mitt system är vi klara om tre timmar.It's no problem as long as we study hard now. We will be finished in three hours with my system.
Anders: Du ser inte ut som någon som pluggar flitigt.You don't look like someone that studies hard.
Markus: Kanske det men vem ska annars vara bäst? Sluta med fördomarna. Går vi ditåt?Maybe, but who else is going to be the best? Stop being so prejudiced. Are we going that way?
Anders: Här kan vi sitta.We can sit here.
Markus: Ska vi skriva på uppgiften från i förrgår?Shall we write the assignment from the day before yesterday?
Anders: Ja snälla. Läraren börjar säkert gråta när han rättar min uppgift.Yes please. I bet the professor starts to cry when he corrects my assignment.
Markus: Eller så blir han arg.Or he gets mad.
Anders: Varför?Why?
Markus: För att du inte förstår något efter en hel termin.Because you don't understand after a whole semester.
Anders: Så illa är det inte. Jag ligger i alla fall inte efter.It's not that bad. At least I'm not behind.
Anders: Så. Ekonomiuppgiften är färdig och snabbläsning är min specialitet. Hur mycket är klockan egentligen?Alright. The economics assignment is done and fast reading is my specialty. What's the time?
Markus: Den är fem över halv sju. Bra, då kan vi käka middag. Jag kan äta minst fjorton hamburgare.It's five past half seven. Good, then we can grab some dinner. I could eat at least fourteen burgers.
Anders: Visst. Då kommer vi tillbaka om trettio minuter eller en timme och pluggar klart.Sure. Then we can return in thirty minutes or one hour and finish studying.
