  5. 5. Es versus Son <ul><li>Both of these words mean“to be” however one is the plural form. </li></ul><ul><li>When we are talking about 1 o’clock we use “es” – because it is one solitary hour. </li></ul><ul><li>When we talk about 2 through 12 we use “son” – because it is multiple hours. </li></ul>

  10. 10. A different way to tell time… <ul><li>Whenever, the time is past thirty minutes, you can also subtract from the upcoming hour. </li></ul><ul><li>Ejemplo: </li></ul><ul><li>2:45- Son las tres menos quince. (It is three minus fifteen…or, it is fifteen minutes until three.) </li></ul>
  11. 11. Midnight <ul><li>¡Es la medianoche!= It’s midnight! </li></ul>
