Pia hat heute früher aus
What does this sentence mean? I’m learning German and translation softwares couldn’t give me meaningful results.
E.g. if you are at work or at school you could say:
Ich habe heute früher aus.
This means your working hours/school day/classes end earlier as usual/ as expected/ compared to X.
So in your example:
"Pia's (school day) is over earlier today"
Without a comparison it is a short form. Often used in context of school or work, to indicate a deviation from the expected working hours or length of the school day.
But you can extend this to use it as an comparison e.g.:
Pia hat heute früher aus, als ihr Bruder / als normalerweise.
The sentence consists of four components:
a girls name, subject of the sentence,
'today', and the verb 'aushaben' in the 3rd person singular:
hat ... aus.
According to the Duden 'aushaben' has four meanings. In this sentence only one makes sense:
Putting the pieces back together you get:
Pia is out of school earlier today.
