Telling Time in Spanish

  • ¿Que hora es? = What time is it?

How to tell time is a very important, real-world thing to learn when you are first starting out with a new language.

This is the most effective way of learning. It’s not just about the features, but what you’re able to do because of them.

How to Tell Time in Spanish

There are a couple of ways to tell time in Spanish. Using the most common route is the easiest to learn and the most widely used. Try starting with this. Once you are comfortable, and a Spanish speaking expert, you can branch out to other ways to express this information.

Hour + y + minutes

For example:

  • 1:20 – Es la una y veinte

Learning Spanish is truly a valuable asset. Spanish is the second most widely spoken language in the world with more than 400 million speakers. Additionally, there are more than 40 million Spanish speakers in the United States, which makes Spanish the second most widely spoken language in the U.S.

Rosetta Stone helps you make those adjustments with our TruAccent™ speech-recognition engine. TruAccent compares your voice in real-time to native speakers. This gives you the feedback you need for the most accurate pronunciation. TruAccent is a powerful tool for helping you learn and speak the Spanish language.
