1 ¿Qué Hora Es? Telling Time in Spanish

2 La Hora  The word for time (referring to clock time) is hora.  The verb ser is used to express the time of day. Use es when referring to "one o'clock" and use son when referring to all other hours.

3 Por Ejemplo…  Es la una. It's one o'clock.  Son las dos. It's two o'clock.

4 La Hora  The feminine article (la, las) is used before the hour because it refers to "la hora.“ Es la una. It's one o'clock. Son las dos. It's two o'clock.

5 La Hora  Minutes can be added to the hour by using the word y (and). Es la una y cinco. It's five minutes past one. Son las tres y doce. It's twelve minutes past three.

6 La Hora  Minutes can be subtracted from the hour using the word menos (minus). Es la una menos cinco. It's five minutes till one. Son las tres menos doce. It's twelve minutes till three.

7 EXPLICACIÓN  Minutes from the hour to the half hour are added to the hour and connected with y. Between the half hour and the next hour, minutes are subtracted from the next hour and connected with menos.

9 La Hora  In addition to treinta and quince, you can also use the words media (half) and cuarto (quarter). 5:15Son las cinco y cuarto 3:30Son las tres y media

10 La Hora  To say something occurs at a specific time, use the formula a + la(s) + time. La fiesta empieza a las nueve. The party begins at nine o'clock. El banco abre a las ocho y media. The bank opens at half past eight.

11 La Hora  To differentiate between a.m. and p.m. use the expressions de la mañana, de la tarde and de la noche. Son las dos de la tarde. It's two in the afternoon. Son las dos de la mañana. It's two in the morning. Son las diez de la noche. It's ten in the evening.
