Time: Telling time in Spanish and discussing daily routines

Telling Time in Spanish:

In Spanish, we use the 12-hour clock system, just like in English. Here are some key phrases and vocabulary related to telling time:

  1. What time is it? - ¿Qué hora es?
  2. It is... - Son / Es (Use "son" for plural hours, and "es" for one o'clock).
  3. o'clock - en punto
  4. half past - y media
  5. quarter past - y cuarto
  6. quarter to - menos cuarto

Now, let's look at the hours and how to express them:

  • 1:00 - Es la una (Note: We use "es" for one o'clock).
  • 2:00 - Son las dos (For all other hours, we use "son" for plural).
  • 3:00 - Son las tres
  • 4:00 - Son las cuatro
  • 5:00 - Son las cinco
  • 6:00 - Son las seis
  • 7:00 - Son las siete
  • 8:00 - Son las ocho
  • 9:00 - Son las nueve
  • 10:00 - Son las diez
  • 11:00 - Son las once
  • 12:00 - Son las doce

Now, let's put this into practice with some example sentences about daily routines:

Daily Routines in Spanish:

  1. I wake up at 7:00 AM. - Me despierto a las siete de la mañana.
  2. I eat breakfast at 8:30 AM. - Desayuno a las ocho y media de la mañana.
