When the hands of the clock show  “exactly” , then we use o’clock immediately after it’s and time .

It’s three o’clock (3:00) – It’s three o’clock

It’s six o’clock (6:00) – Six o’clock

It’s ten o’clock (10:00) – Ten o’clock

2. And half – half past

When the clock shows “and a half” , then we use the half past immediately after it’s but before the time .

It’s half past five (05:30) – Five and a half

It’s half past two (02:30) – Two and a half

It’s half past six (06:30) – Six and a half

3. And Fourth – quarter past…. Despite Fourth – quarter to

When the time is “and quarter” , then we use the (a) quarter past immediately after it’s but before the time .

When the time is “rather than a quarter” , then we use the (a) quarter to after it’s but before the time .

It’s (a) quarter past ten (10:15) – Ten and four

It’s (a) quarter past four (04:15) – Four and four

It’s (a) quarter to one (12:45) –

Μία παρά τέταρτο It’s (a) quarter to eleven (10:45) –

In both cases (a) is in parentheses, why not say the sentence and the time is right.

Usually in English we do not use the 24 hour clock format . We use am for the morning and pm for the afternoon and evening . These are the initials of the Latin terms   ” ante meridiem ” and ” post meridiem ” which mean ” before noon ” and ” after noon “.

6 am = Six o’clock in the morning

6 pm = Six o’clock in the afternoon

9 am = Nine o’clock in the morning

9 pm = Nine o’clock in the evening
