6 tips para decir la hora como un nativo

  • En inglés el sistema de 12hs es el más común para decir la hora. El sistema de 24hs se usa básicamente en computación, el ejército, invitaciones, horarios de trenes, aviones y programas de TV.

  • En el sistema de 12 hs, utiliza “a.m.” para los horarios de la mañana y “p.m.” para los horarios de la tarde.

  • Hay 6 períodos durante el día:

período hora
Morning 0:01 -11:59
Noon or Midday 12:00
Afternoon 12:01 - 18:00
Evening* 18:01 - 22:00
Night 22:01 -24:00
Midnight 22:01 -24:00
  • Utiliza “o’clock” solo hasta las 12. No digas “It’s 13 o’clock”.

  • Ten cuidado con las preposiciones que utilizas:

at in
at midnight in the morning
at noon in the afternoon
at…..o’clock in the evening
at night
at 6:45pm
  • Si vas a usar el sistema digital, recuerda que el “0” se pronuncia “oh”. Por ejemplo: 10:06 es “ten oh six”.

¡Practica tu inglés! Escribe la hora en la que estás leyendo este post en la sección de comentarios.

Normalmente, usamos la palabra minutes cuando el número no es divisible por cinco. "Four minutes to four" (al menos, en inglés británico).

June 22, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/HelpfulDuo

¡Exactmente! no hay nada malo en decir "four to four", pero un nativo redondearía la cifra a "five to four", o diría " four minutes to four" como tú lo sugieres. También está la versión de la hora digital, osea " three fifty six". Gracias por tu aporte.
