How do you say in german 8:30?

My sentence is, Die Schule beginnt um 8:30 Uhr, die zu früh für mich ist. But i don't know how to pronouce 8:30, like in english we would say eight thirty.

Also how do you pronouce 60, 1000 in german

and the years 1990, 2006, 2009 and 2010.

    Acht uhr dreißig minuten

    Acht dreissig

    Halb neun

    Dreißig minuten nach Acht

    Sechzig: 60

    Ein tausend: 1000

    1990: Ein tausend neun hundert neunzig.

    2006: Zwei tausend sechs

    2010: Zwei tausend zehn

    For the pronunciation:

    Copy the sentences and then play with the german voice.

    08:30 in German is halb neun (noin) (i.e. half before nine, Dutch uses the same logic - half negen). Sixty is sechzig (sex zig), thousand is tousand. Years are usually pronounced in two halves so 1990 is neunzehn neunzig (noin sayn noin zig), the 2000's are zweitousand sex, neun and zehn.

    or you could say acht Uhr dreissig, but it's less natural.



    Neunzehn hundert neunzig, Zweitausendsechs, Zweitausendneun, Zweitausendzehn.
