Exprimand timpul=Expressing time Formal, dar mai usor

Mai intai spunem ora si apoi minutele.

Ex: 7:45 - seven forty-five


Pentru minutele 01-09, putem pronunta '0' ca oh.

Ex: 11:06 - eleven oh-six Forma mai populara


Mai intai spunem minutele si apoi orele. Folosim past si ora precedenta pentru minutele 01-30. Folosim to si ora ce urmeaza pentru minutele 31-59.

Ex: 7.15 - fifteen minutes past seven Ex: 7.45 - fifteen minutes to eight
Alta posibilitate de a zice '15 minutes past' este: a quarter past Alta posibilitate de a zice '15 minutes to' is: a quarter to Alta posibilitate de a zice '30 minutes past' is: half past

Ex: 5:30 - half past five Watch

Nota
Foloseste o'clock numai la orele fixe.

Ex: 7:00 - seven o'clock (but 7:10 - ten past seven)


Pentru perioadele miezul noptii si miezul zilei folosim midnight si midday/noon in loc de ora 12 noapte/ziua.

00:00 - midnight 12:00 - midday or noon


Pentru perioadele dinaintea sau dupa ora 12 fix putem folosi expresiile in the morning, in the afternoon, in the evening,at night. Folosim in the morning inainte de 12 o'clock noon, iar dupa 12 o'clock noon folosim in the afternoon. Schimbarea de la afternoon la evening, de la evening la night si de la night la morning depinde de perceperea ta a timpului.

Example: 3:15 - a quarter past three in the morning OR a quarter past three at night
Alte expresii mai formale de a indica timpul dinainte sau dupa pranz(ora 12) sunt: a.m. (sau: am - ante meridiem, before noon) si p.m. (sau: pm - post meridiem, after noon).

Example: 3:15 - three fifteen a.m. -three fifteen p.m.(adica 15:15)


Nu se foloseste a.m. si p.m. cu past/to.

Example: 3:15 - fifteen minutes past three OR a quarter past three, NOT fifteen minutes past three a.m./p.m.
American English=Engleza americana Pe langa past Americanii folosesc deseori after.

Example: 06:10 - ten past/after six


Dar: in expresii de timp ca half past nu se inlocuieste past cu after. Pe langa to Americanii folosesc deseori before, of sau till.

Example: 05:50 - ten to/before/of/till six
