TELLING TIME

Hello guys

If we talk about the time, sometimes we will get confused to express. Some students just mention the number, or some students use another expression. Well, there are 3 ways to express the time, so we can choose among those ways, such as:

  • using general way

In this way, we can mention the numbers directly without additional expression, like;

03.25= it is three twenty five

  1. 17= it is twelve seventeen
  2. 45= it is ten forty five
  • using past and to

In this way, past is used for minutes 1 to 30, and to is used for minutes 31 to 59. Don’t forget to mention the minutes first then the hour, examples:

07.27= it is twenty seven past seven

09.30 = it is a half past nine

10.50= it is ten minutes to eleven

12.58 = it is two minutes to one

  • using before and after

Before and after expressions have the same functions as past and to. They just have different way to express, for examples:

07.27= it is twenty seven after seven

09.30 = it is a half after nine

10.50= it is ten minutes before eleven

12.58 = it is two minutes before one

So, let’s try guys, and don’t forget to practice anywhere you can. See ya ^_^
