Free Time/What's the time?
If you want to tell what you do in your free time, you often need to say when you do it.
This is a clock! A clock has a face and two hands.
When the minute hand moves, it shows the number of minutes past the hour.
If the number of minutes is higher than 31, you count up to the next hour.
What time is it?
Die volle Stunde wird mit dem Zahlwort und o' clock (of the clock) gebildet.
Bei Viertel- und halben Stunden werden oft nicht die Minuten, sondern die Wörter „(a) quarter“ und „half “verwendet.
Match the times and the clocks!
What time is it? Write the correct time!
Be careful! This isn't correct!
In the 2010s, some United Kingdom schools started replacing analogue clocks in halls with digital clocks because an increasing number of pupils were unable to read analogue clocks. Smartphone and computer clocks are often digital rather than analogue, and proponents of replacing analogue clock faces argue that they have become technologically obsolete. However, reading analogue clocks is still part of American elementary school curricula; proponents of analogue clocks argue that their inclusion in the curriculum reinforces basic mathematical concepts that are taught in elementary school.
