From my experience, in Chinese you can say 差一刻九点 as well as 九点差一刻. Both should be correct (have reported).

Both are accepted, 9.Jan.18

My chinese teacher told me that 差一刻 is for only old people


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

How old is an old person? 90 years old? 30 years old?

I like old style

"差一刻九點整?" 我覺得也是可以這麼說的!

Do you mean 九点钟?I've never heard 九点整.

I would prefer to say 8:45. It's really weird to say a quarter to nine in Chinese.

I put 一刻差九点 and it wasn't accepted. Was I wrong?

I think that's like saying nine o'clock past a quarter. Right words wrong order.

I have never heard anyone use this in Taiwan. Not sure about China but nobody speaks like this here

This phrase is so weird. '差一刻九点' 还容易理解。'九点差一刻'怪怪的, 没听过也没看过.
