Existen distintas maneras de decir la hora en inglés. Aquí te damos algunas reglas para decir la hora:

O’clock - hora exacta

Cuando la hora es exacta, es decir, 1:00 p.m., 5:00 a.m., 3:00 p.m. se dice la expresión o’clock, por ejemplo:

  • 1:00 se dice It’s one o’clock
  • 3:00 se dice It’s three o’clock
  • 5:00 se dice It’s five o’clock

Quarter - para hablar de 15 minutos

Cuando han transcurrido quince minutos de una hora se utiliza la expresión quarter past, por ejemplo:

  • 4:15 se dice It’s quarter past four
  • 6:15 se dice It’s quarter past six
  • 10:15 se dice It’s quarter past ten

Cuando han transcurrido 45 minutos de una hora, o lo que es igual, faltan 15 minutos para una hora determinada, se utiliza la expresión quarter to, por ejemplo:

  • 4:45 se dice It’s quarter to five
  • 8:45 se dice It’s quarter to nine
  • 10:45 se dice It’s quarter to eleven

Half - para hablar de 30 minutos

Cuando han transcurrido treinta minutos de una hora se utiliza la expresión half-past, por ejemplo:

  • 1:30 se dice It’s half-past one
  • 8:30 se dice It’s half-past eight
  • 5:30 se dice It’s half-past five

Minutes past - el número de minutos después de cierta hora exacta

Cuando han transcurrido algunos minutos dentro de la primera mitad de una hora se usa la estructura:

It’s + minutos transcurridos + past + hora en curso

Por ejemplo:

  • 2:10 se dice It’s ten past two
  • 3:20 se dice It’s twenty past three
  • 7:25 se dice It’s twenty-five past seven

Minutes to - el número de minutos después de la media hora

Cuando han transcurrido algunos minutos dentro de la segunda mitad de una hora se usa la preposición TO, con esta estructura:

It’s + minutos pendientes + to + siguiente hora

Por ejemplo:

  • 10:35 se dice It’s twenty-five to eleven
  • 9:40 se dice It’s twenty to ten
  • 3:50 se dice It’s ten to four
