A- A A+


      Do you know como say the time in English?

BRITISH

      Well, eles gostam de sophistication


3:15
= A quarter after three (or: a quarter past three).

3:30 = Half past three.

(Pronunciation: HÁF – British / HÉF – American)

3:45 = A quarter to four.

AMERICAN

      Well, eles gostam de ser practical


3:15
= Three fifteen.

3:30 = Three thirty.

3:45 = Three fourty-five.

AM / PM

      In English, as hours vão only até o number 12, e depois começam again do zero. Não existe 13 o’clock, 14 o’clock etc.

      Para indicar se são 2 da madruga ou 2 in the afternoon, você deve  inform se é AM (before midday) or PM (after midday):

Eg: It’s 2:00 am (= 2 in the morning, ou seja, before midday).

Eg: It’s 2:00 pm (= 2 in the afternoon, ou seja, after midday).

ESQUEÇA ESSA COISA DEO’CLOCK‘!

      Para horas redondas, você aprendeu que deve usar  ‘o’clock‘. But… Sempre que você diz ‘o’clock‘, você deixa uma dúvida: afinal, você se refere ao morning ou ao evening?

      Para solve this problem, deixe este tal de ‘o’clock‘ de lado and remember de inform se é am or pm.
