Homework Help: Spanish

Posted by ANA on Thursday, November 9, 2006 at 6:38pm.

How do you tell time in Spanish.

son las 5 ye 2 en canada!no se como pero en todo lugar es different! yo so que no puedo escribe muy bein en espanol pero me gusta! adios! Dios te bendiga!

Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. Divide the clock in half and use "y" for the first half, up to the half hour, and then "menos" on the other half!

To say "it is" = es la + una.(It is one o'clock) BUT "it is" after one o'clock = "son las" + dos, tres, etc. until you get to l:31 = "Son las dos menos veintinueve." (Literally "it is 2 o'clock minus 29.")

Half past is expressed by "y media" = Son las seis y media = It is 6:30. A quarter is expressed by "cuarto." Son las diez y cuarto = It is a quarter after ten.

Let us know when you would like other time expressions and/or how to use the 24-hour clock as you would see on timetables for trains, busses, etc.

son las 5 y 2 minutos, son las 5:30=5 y media(half) o las 5 y trenta(30). 5:45.= 5 y cuarenta y cinco minutos o faltan quince(15) para las 5 means 15 to 5. or 5 menos(minus) cuarto
