In this lesson we will be learning how to tell the time in Spanish.
Before we begin you may need to refer back to the lessons beforehand involving numbers (specifically numbers 1-59 for this lesson).
Steps 1: First how to ask 'What time is it?'
'Que hora es'?
Step 2: If you are asked this question, here are examples of how to reply.
One O'clock = 'Es la una'
Two O'clock = 'Son las dos'
Three O'clock = 'Son las tres'
Four O'clock = 'Son las cuatro'
Five O'clock = 'Son las cinco'
Six O'clock = 'Son las seis'
Seven O'clock = 'Son las seite'
Eight O'clock = 'Son las ocho'
Nine O'clock = 'Son las nueve'
Ten O'clock = 'Son las diez'
Eleven O'clock = 'Son las once'
Twelve O'clock = 'Son las doce'
Step 3: Depending on whether its 12:00 or 00:00 you can also use a different phrase as long as it is exactly twelve no minutes after or before.
Twelve O'clock Midday = 'Es el mediodia'
Twelve O'clock Midnight = 'Es la medianoche'
Step 4: To add minutes to your time all you need to add is a 'y' and the number afterwards, for example.
Ten past One = 'Es la una y diez'
Step 5: To add pm or am to your time use these phrases after your time.
Morning = 'de la manana'
Afternoon = 'de la tarde'
Night = ' de la noche'
Step 6: Now let's practice answering the time.
