Telling the time
Hello. Excuse me but do you know the time?
Oh, yes I do.
Thank you, sir.
The time is three in the afternoon.
So right now it’s 3:00 PM
Yes, that’s another way to tell time.
Oh, how does your watch tell time?
It’s an analog watch, which is like a clock with the long hand and small hand.
Yes, these watches are more traditional than digital ones.
don’t digital watches tell time by numbers instead of analog’s way?
Yes, but I prefer an analog watch over a digital watch.
How much time has past since we started talking?
It’s been only 10 minutes.
So right now it should be 3:10 PM.
You are correct.
It’s almost time for work for me.
When will you have to work?
Oh, I will have to work in 30 minutes.
You still have some time to get ready.
I also have to wait for the bus, which will arrive at 3:25 PM.
My bus will arrive at 3:20 PM.
What time is it right now?
The time is 3:15 PM. So I’ll have to be at the bus stop in 5 minutes. Bye.
Okay, good bye.
