Lesson - observe the clocks




01:00 >> it's one (o'clock)
one o'clock in the morning >> 01:00 am (ante meridiem)
one o'clock in the afternoon>> 01:00 pm (post meridiem)
In English they don't say 13:00, they say 01:00 pm
They don't say 18:00, they say 06:00 pm, etc...






In English they say the minutes BEFORE the hours :

03:05 >> it's five past three
03:10 >> it's ten past three
03:15 >> it's QUARTER past three
03:20 >> it's twenty past three
03:25 >> it's twenty-five past three
03:30 >> it's HALF past three


"past" : the minutes go from 0 to 30




07:55 >> it's five to eight
07:50 >> it's ten to eight
07:45 >> it's quarter to eight
07:40 >> it's twenty to eight
07:35 >> it's twenty-five to eight

04:40 >> it's twenty to five

"to" : the minutes go from 31 to 59


NOTE
train and bus timetables are read differently (it's quicker) :
10:30 ten thirty
9:20 nine twenty
2:45 two forty-five
