Translation:Be in the hospital at nineteen past one!
"Var" is used as "to" an hour when we are describing current time. However, when we are talking about a future time ("at -minutes- to -an hour-") we use "kala".
geçehastanede ol = Be in the hospital at nineteen
kalahastanede ol = Be in the hospital at nineteen

♡ Numbers from 1 to 29 + quarters (çeyrek): takes geçe/geçiyor (past) or var/kala (to). + no.s: 1 to 29 affect the main hour with suffix additions.
It is like Y after/to X, when y is the minutes or quarter and x is the hour, and since Y is dependent on X we will put the suffix link indicator to x
♡♡ Numbers 31 to 59 + half (buçuk): doesnt need any past/to indicators. + doesnt affect the main hour with suffix additions.
Its like saying: X and Y when x is the hour and y is the minutes (31 to 59) or half, and both are independent.
I dont know if I made things more complicated or not!!
♡♡♡ examples: It is five past one = biri beş geçiyor // it is five to one = bire beş var // at five past one = biri beş geçe // at five to one = bire beş kala /◇◇◇/ it is one and a half = bir buçuk // it is one and fifty five = bir elli beş // at one and a half = bir buçukta // at one and fifty five = bir elli beşte
mmm, hoping İ did it right up there, İyi şanslar
Hi, MahaAlBake. "bire" is "bir" (one; 1) in the dative case, while "biri" is in the accusative. The use of these cases when telling time is described here: https://www.duolingo.com/skill/tr/What-time-is-it%3F/tips-and-notes
