【高頻英語口語】英語中時間的正確表達法~

一、所有的時間都可以用「小時 + 分鐘」直接讀:
6:10 six ten
8:30 eight thirty
2:40 two forty

二、如果所表述的時間在半小時之內,可以用「分鐘 + past + 小時」:
6:10 ten past six
4:20 twenty past four
10:25 twenty-five past ten

三、如果所表述的時間在半小時之外,可以用「(相差的)分鐘 + to + (下一)小時」:
10:35 twenty-five to eleven
5:50 ten to six
9:49 eleven to ten

四、如果所表述的時間恰好為半小時,可以用「half + past + 小時」:
11:30 half past eleven
2:30 half past two

五、如果所表述的分鐘和15有關,就有三種表達法:
(15分鐘又叫一刻鐘:a quarter)
9:15 nine fifteen ; fifteen past nine ; a quarter past nine
3:45 three forty-five ; fifteen to four ; a quarter to four

六、整點的表達:
現在是兩點整。It's two./It's two o'clock.
另外英語中的 noon 和midnight 可分別直接表示白天和夜晚的12點:
It's (twelve) noon. 現在是中午十二點。
It's (twelve) midnight. 現在是半夜零點。

七、大約時間:
It's almost two. 馬上到兩點了。
It's not quite two. 還不到兩點。
It's just after two. 剛過兩點。

八、若想表明是上午,可在時間后加上a.m.
如:thirteen past six a.m.(上午六點十三分)。
若想表明是下午,可在時間后加上p.m.
如:four o'clock p.m.(下午四點)。

九、句子範例
1. It's nine forty-five. =It's a quarter to ten.
2. It's two seventeen. =It's seventeen past two.
3. It's three. =It's three o'clock.
4. It's nine thirty. =It's half past nine.
5. It's six fifteen. =It's a quarter past six.
6. It's three fifty. =It's ten to four.
