    Hi guys !

    What does it mean فيّص ? The English translation is " to fade up", but I'm not completely sure about its meaning.
    The sentence goes like this : كل الطلاب بيفيّصوا على الساعه واحده .. واحده ونص . All the students ---- around one o'clock ...around half past one.

    Thanks !

    It seems to read:All students go out of school at 1.30 PM

    Sorry, Ayed, I'm afraid this is not correct. It means they're out of energy and can't focus or make effort anymore.
