Spanish By Tommy Brinson
Spanish We understand that when you come to Spain to learn Spanish, it's not only about the language... you also want to see and experience new places, take plenty of pictures, meet new people and immerse yourself in the country's fascinating cultural scene. After all, some of the world's top museums and wholly unique festivals are found in Spain. Nevertheless, in order to get a genuine taste of Spanish culture, you need not spend hours in libraries and dusty rooms: just go out there, communicate with the people and experience first hand the cultural paradise that is Spain. In order for you to be able to do just that, our schools, located in Spain's most interesting destinations, are open all year round (yes, even during festival seasons!), and offer classes focusing on such cultural facets as literature and art history, organizing all sorts of interesting cultural activities and excursions for our valued students! literatureart historycultural activities and excursions
To ask someone the time in Spanish, you say: ¿Qué hora es? - What time is it? To tell the time in Spanish is a little more complicated. For midnight or noon, you begin with es. es el mediodía - it's noon es la medianoche - it's midnight For any time that begins with one o'clock, you begin with es. Let's look at some examples: es la una menos cuarto - it's fifteen til one es la una menos veinte - it's twenety til one es la una - it's one o’clock es la una en punto - it's one o’clock sharp es la una y cuarto - it's one fifteen es la una y veinte - it's one twenty es la una y media - it's one thirty For other times, you begin with son.
Spanish son las dos - it's two o’clock son las cinco - it's five o’clock son las cinco en punto - it's five o’clock sharp son las cinco y cuarto - it's five fifteen son las seis menos cuarto - it's fifteen til six son las tres menos cinco - it's five til three son las tres y veinticinco - it's three twentyfive son las cinco menos ocho - it's eight til five son las ocho y veintidós - it's eight twenty-two son las cinco y media - it's five thirty To be more precise, you may express if you are referring to the early morning, morning, afternoon or evening. son las dos de la madrugada it's two o’clock in the early morning son las siete de la mañana it's seven o’clock in the morning son las cinco de la tarde it's five o’clock in the afternoon son las ocho y media de la noche it's eight thrity in the evening
