English Time Announcements

In English, time to the hour is written with the expression o’clock. Time to the minute (as in five thirty) does not include the expression o’clock; 1:20 = one fifteen and 4:00 = four o’clock. Use these terms as you talk with other people about these common store opening hours. Below are real-life examples of different locations’ opening hours. Use them to practice a conversation.
