Just like in English, spoken Spanish does not always require use of complete sentences for context purposes; however, for grammar purposes, we will learn to answer in complete sentences. To say “It is...” when telling the time in Spanish, there are two phrases to use...”Es la...” or “Son las...” “Es la...” is ONLY used when the stated hour is ONE. Any other time, use “Son las...” Es la una y diez.

4 Son las dos ¿Qué hora es? Anytime you do NOT hear ONE as the hour, you will use “Son las...” Son las cuatro y veinte.
