Telling Time

Here are several different ways to talk about the time!

What time is it?

It is 5 o’clock.

OR

It’s 5.

 

Use o’clock to a time that is on the hour. Remember that if you want to clarify in the morning or at night, AM or PM goes after o’clock.

 

Ex:       It is 6 o’clock PM.       (Afternoon)

 

It is 8 o’clock AM.       (Morning)

What about other times?

 

There are two ways to say 3:40.

  1. It’s three forty.
  2. It’s twenty to three.

3:15 Three fifteen A quarter past three

12:45 Twelve forty-five A quarter to one

 

Bonus: These two times can also be said in another way!
