Los Números
A quick review
uno=one
dos=two
tres=three
cuatro=four
cinco=five
seis=six
siete=seven
ocho=eight
nueve=nine
diez=ten
once=eleven
doce=twelve
¿QUÉ HORA ES?
• This literally means “What hour is it?”
• The correct response varies depending on the time. For example for times
near one o’clock The response begins with “Es la…” For times of two
o’clock or greater the response begins with “Son las…” This is because
one is singular, and two or more is plural, and in Spanish all verbs must
agree in number with their subject.
• For times near one o’clock, use “una” instead of “uno.” This is because the
word “hora” is feminine, and in Spanish, the response must match the
gender of the item in question. The rest of the times will use the same
words as before.
So, “Es la una.” means “It’s one o’clock.”
“Son las dos.” means “It’s two o’clock.”
“Son las tres.” means “It’s three o’clock.
And so on…
Son las tres.
Son las cinco.
Es la una.
Son las dos
Son las once
Halves and Quarters
• For telling time at the half hour use “…y media.” This means
“and a half.” So “Es la una y media.” means the same thing as
“It’s one thirty.”
• For telling time at fifteen minutes past the hour, use the
expression “…y cuarto.” this means “and a quarter.” So “Son
las cinco y cuarto.” means “It’s a quarter past five.” (or 5:15 to
you digital folks)
• For telling time at fifteen minutes to the hour, use the
expression “…menos cuarto.” This means “minus a quarter.”
So “Son las diez menos cuarto.” means “It’s a quarter till ten.”
Son las seis y media.
Son las cuatro y cuarto
Son las nueve menos cuarto
Son las dos y cuarto
Es la una menos cuarto
