01-015 – ¿Qué hora es? – Telling time with “menos”

Posted by Señor Jordan on Jun 26, 2014 in time, verbs, vocabulary, year 1 |

¡Hola a todos!  In this video, we’ll be learning how to answer the question ¿Qué hora es? using menos. It’s an alternative way to talk about when the time is half passed the hour in some Spanish-speaking countries.  Make sure to review your numbers 1-59 if you’re a little shaky on them!

Also, I hope you enjoy the graphics.  Sure, it’s nothing advanced, but I hope it makes it easier to learn for you! Enjoy!
