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

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
