英文時間的說法

12:15=It’s a quarter of twelve. It’s twelve fifteen.

12:45=15 minutes before 1:00. It’s a quarter at one.

12:30=It’s thirty off twelve.

    何時用at,before,of?

    有這種用法嗎?

    A)據我所學英式英文說法

    1. 30分鐘以前用 past。意思是幾點過了幾分鐘

    例如12:15 : twelve past fifteen/quarter

    2.30分鐘以後用 to。意思是再幾分鐘就幾點

    例如12:45 : fifteen/quarter to one

    3.至於

    12:00→ twelve o'clock

    12:30→ half past twelve

    PS 英式英文先說分再說時

    B)美式英文先說時再說分

    把時間當數字唸就沒有 past 或 to的問題

    例如

    12:15→twelve fifteen/quarter

    12:45→twelve forty-five

    12:30→twelve thirty

    12:00→twelve o'clock

    Hi let me explain.

    At:You can use at if u have a plan to do something at a certain time.

    e.g I am meeting my friends at half past one.

    Before: Same situation. You can use before if you plan to do something before a certain time.

    e.g You have to arrive at my house before two thirty otherwise we will be late for the concert.

    Of is not frequently used in time. I think the only example I can think of is.

    e.g You have wasted too much of my time

    I hope I have explained it properly

    To HKL:

    I think 郁兔 meant how do u use at, before and of in conjunction with time. At least that's my interpretation of it.

    英文時間的說法

    12:00=”twelve hours” “It’s twelve !“ 12 a.m. 12 p.m.

    我的想法 It's twelve at the noon(night).

    12:15=It’s a quarter of twelve. It’s twelve fifteen.

    我的想法 It's a quarter past twelve.(past表示過去了)12點過15分

    12:45=15 minutes before 1:00. It’s a quarter at one.

    我的想法 It's a quarter to one.(tto指將要到)15分後將要到1點

    12:30=It’s thirty off twelve.

    我的想法It’s a half past twelve.or It’s a half to one.

    half是指一半也就是半小時

    希望幫的上忙
