14. Portuguese Time
Telling time in Portuguese:
|Que horas são?||What time is it?|
|É uma hora.||It's one.|
|São duas, três, quatro... horas||It's two/three/four...|
|É meio dia.||It's noon.|
|É meio dia e meia*||It's half past noon.|
|É meia noite.||It's midnight.|
|São cinco e cinco.||It's 5:05|
|São oito e quinze.||It's 8:15|
|São quinze para as dez.||It's 9:45|
|São dez para as nove.||It's 8:50|
|São vinte e cinco para as seis||It's 5:35|
|São três e meia.||It's 3:30|
You say meio dia e meia because it’s midday and a half hour (that is feminine). Don’t say meio dia e meio, though many people used to say this.
