This blog has been designed to provide information about the activities held at the social studies bilingual sections in CPI Tino Grandío (Guntín,Spain). The English language and Social Studies teachers have elaborated most of the resources you can see but our "auxiliares de conversa" also have their own page and posts. Therefore everyone is invited to have a look .

How to tell the time in English

If you want to know the time there are some ways of asking it:

  • What's the time?
  • What time is it?
  • Can you tell me the time?

And this is how you can tell what time it is:
  • 03:00 - It's three o'clock.
  • 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
  • 03:35 - It's twenty-five to four
  • 03:40 - It's forty to four
  • 03:45 - It's quarter to four
  • 03:50 - It's ten to four
  • 03:55 - It's five to four
  • 04:00 - It's four o'clock
If you have to tell other times you will have to mention "minutes"
And this is an exercise for you to practise telling the time.
  • 02:24 - It's twenty-four minutes past two
