Now we know two types of verbs: group 1 (those who end on an -a in imperative) and group 2 (those who end on a consonant).

Im Vergleich sehen die beiden Gruppen so aus:

Infinitive tense Present tense Imperative tense
-a -ar -a
studera studerar studera!
-a -er -consonant
köpa köper köp!

Can you find the verbs in the text which belong to the second group?

In Swedish we use the preposition pÄ in present tense before a word that expresses time. In past tense we use i. Here are the most important words to express the different times of the day.

pÄ morgonen in the morning i morse this morning
pÄ förmiddagen before noon i förmiddags today before noon
pÄ eftermiddagen in the afternoon i eftermiddags this afternoon
pÄ kvÀllen* in the evening ikvÀll tonight/this evening
pÄ natten in the night i natt tonight/last night
*An older word for evening is afton, which you could hear in the news from time to time.
