"Tini arrives too late for the chemistry lesson."

Translation:Tini terlambat datang ke pelajaran kimia.

July 29, 2019



What is the difference between "terlambat datang" and "datang terlambat"? And why is it "ke" and not "di" (pelajaran kimia)? Isn't it "datang di sini" and "pergi ke sana"?


The word "too" in the English sentence is redundant. It implies that she arrived too late, i.e. after the lesson is over.
