MONDAY BEGINNERS COURSE, 2014, CLASS 5

Our last lesson was about how to ask/say the time in Spanish.
¿Qué hora es? – What time is it?
Es la… / Son las … - It is…

In Spanish, we say the hour first and then the minutes.
1:00 Es la una en punto                
7.00 Son las siete en punto
4.30 Son las cuatro y media
7.15 Son las siete y cuarto
9.20 Son las nueve y veinte
3.35 Son las cuatro menos veinticinco
En punto - o’clock
Y cuarto - quarter past
Y media – half past
Menos cuarto – quarter to

We also learnt some vocabulary related to time:
Reloj – Watch, clock
Hora – hour
Minuto – minute
Segundo – second

In the second part of the lesson, we learnt the days of the week:
Los días de la semana – The days of the week
Lunes – Monday
Martes – Tuesday
Miércoles – Wednesday

El fin de semana – The weekend
Sábado – Saturday
Domingo – Sunday
¿Qué día es hoy? – What day is today?
Hoy es … - Today is …
¿Y mañana? – And tomorrow?

We listened to a dialogue and we learnt other ways to ask the time:
Perdone, ¿tiene hora? – Could you tell me what time is it?
Sí, son las 8.15 – Yes, it is 8.15
¿Qué hora tienes? – What time is it?
Las 2.25 – It is 2.25
