Telling Time

Telling Time Telling time in Spanish is straightforward: Its 2:00. Its 3:00. Its 4:00. Its 5:00 -----

Son las dos. Son las tres. Son las cuatro. Son las cinco. Get the answer in your head (or on paper) before clicking for it: Its 6:00. ?

Son las seis. Its 8:00. ? Son las ocho. Its 11:00. ? Son las once. You know how we say, Its 10 after 2:00, Its 20 after 4:00, etc.? In Spanish, you say,

Its 2:00 and 10. (2:10) -Son las dos y diez. Its 4:00 and 20. (4:20) -- Son las cuatro y veinte. Its 6:00 and a quarter (15). (6:15) Son las seis y cuarto. Its 8:00 and a half. (8:30) --Son las ocho y media. Note that whats pink in English is equivalent to whats pink in Spanish, whats yellow in English is equivalent to whats yellow in Spanish, etc. Click here to go to a brief practice

exercise. When youre finished, hit back on your toolbar. We say after only until we get to 30. We wouldnt say, Its 40 after 3:00. Instead, wed say, Its 20 till 4:00. You cant say anything higher than 30. So once you reach 30, you kind of start counting backwards. You say, Its 4:00 minus 20. (The equivalent of 20 till 4:00.) Its 4:00 minus 20. (3:40)--Son las cuatro menos veinte.

Its 7:00 minus 5. (6:55)Son las siete menos cinco. Its 10:00 minus 25. (9:35)Son las diez menos veinte y cinco. Its 12:00 minus a quarter. (11:45)Son las doce menos cuarto. Note that whats pink in English is equivalent to whats pink in Spanish, whats yellow in English is equivalent to whats yellow in Spanish, etc.

Click here to go to a brief practice exercise. When youre finished, hit back on your toolbar. You may have noticed that none of the times mentioned so far have been 1:00, 1:10, etc. Thats because you have to say, Its 1:00, a little differently from how you say, Its 2:00, Its 3:00, etc.:

Its 1:00. -- Es la (NOT son las) una. Its 1:10. -- Es la (NOT son las) una y diez. Its 1:30. -- Es la (NOT son las) una y media. Its 12:50. (1:00 minus 10) -- Es la una menos diez. Its 12:35. (1:00 minus 25) -- Es la una menos veinte y cinco. Any time you have to say, Una, then Es la, not Son las, must precede it.

Note that media is the word for half (as in half past). Son las tres y media. Its half past 3:00. (3:30) The word cuarto means quarter. Dont confuse it with cuatro. Remember that both cuarto and quarter have uart in them. Now click here to go to your homework.
