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.
