  4. 4. There are 2 ways to telling the time in French; using the 12hrs or Military 24hrs GMT; Either ways, it is important to know how to say the numbers 1-24 in French because there are 24hrs in a day; Also it is important to know basic time indicating vocabularies like Morning, Noon, Afternoon, Evening, Night etc; 4
  5. 5. The question phrase always used to ask time is « quelle heure est-il? » which literally means what time is it?; The phrase usually used as a template to answer is « il est…….. »; « heures » means hours/time; In French, we have to put the word « heure (s) » after the number indicating the time; 5
  6. 6. In French, we do not say AM or PM; we use « du matin (Morning/AM), de l’apres midi (Afternoon/pm), du soir (Evening). E.g. 6PM= il est six heures du soir; « A quater past » in French is « et quart » e.g. 3:15(PM)= il est trois heures et quart (de l’apres midi); « Half past » in French is « et demie » e.g. (4:30AM) = il est quatre heures et demie du matin; 6
  7. 7. « A quater to… » in French is « ………moins le quart » e.g. 4: 45(PM) = il est cinq heures moins le quart (du soir); Also one could use the Military time to say the time in French e.g. 14 o’clock means 2pm. In this case one would translate the time not as « il est deux heures » but as « il est quartoze heures » ; 7
  8. 8. Quelle heures est-il? 2h 00 (Il es deux heures) 2h 15 (il est deux heures et quart) 2h 20 (il est deux heures vingt) 2h 30 (il est deux heures et demie) 2h 40 (il est trois heures moins vingt) 2h 45 (il est trois heures moins le quart) 12 Noon (il est midi) 12 Mid-night (il est minuit) 8
  9. 9. 9h 10 (il est neuf heures dix) 12h 30 (il est midi et demie) 9h 45 (il est dix heures moins le quart) 4h 55 (il est cinq heures moins cinq ) 20h 15 (il est vingt heures quart) 23h 55 (il est minuit moins cinq) 12h 02 (il est midi et deux) 19h 10 (il est dix neuf heures dix) 1h 20 (il est une heure vingt) 10h 40 (il est onze heures moins quarante) 9
