My name is Megan Brach. I have been teaching English as a second language for 4 years. Learning English is not fast nor is it easy, but I am going to help you get started. Are you ready? Let's learn English. Now let's learn how to tell time in English. Telling time in English is quite easy. You simply split the time down the middle. You say your hour first and your minute last. So this is 12:15. What time is this? 12:30. And what time is this? 12:45. Now when you arrive at a new hour you simply say the hour and o'clock. So what time is this? 1 o'clock. So it's important to remember that am means morning and pm means night. So at 6 o'clock am you are eating breakfast and at 6 o'clock pm your eating dinner. Now get out there and practice telling time in English. No problems I just wanted to clarify that you want the 12:15 etc in numerals rather than typing them out as twelve fifteen. Thanks for the information everything else was self explanatory.
