At 3:24, you have “Son las once y trienta (media), yet the clock shows 10:30. Shouldn’t the text say “Son las diez y trienta (media) to match the clock? Thanks. BTW, I think your vids are awesome! Thank you for taking the time to make them. Can’t imagine learning Spanish any other way.

Thank u for your tremendous work! One little thing, it is written “in the night”, should be “at night”.

! hola! Señor Jordan, ?Cómo estás?
I´m learning a lot, your videos are great. I think to say las horas in Spanish is very similar to Portuguese, pero nós usamos dizer também 20:00 (vinte horas). 12:00 (meio dia) is the same; 13:00 (uma hora ou treze horas) and so on until 24:00 (vinte quatro horas ou meia noite). that´s interesting, isn´t it? Why don´t you learn Portuguese? It´ll be very easy for you.

I jst discovered your site and I am thrilled.
I have to take Spanish at my study programm and I alreadu failed twice, so this time I have to pass or I cannot complete my study progam. however now tat I foynd your sire I am a bit more confident 🙂 in class (I ave a teacher from Spain) I learnt that for 2:40 for example I have to say: son es dos menos veinte

is that something only the people from Spain do to include the menos for the second half of the clock?

Thank you so much for these videos, they are a fantastic help!

i have a question. Say the time is 5:42am. In your video you use the “son las seis menos diez y ocho de la mañana” Could you use “diecisiete” to replace ” diez y ocho” or is that a improper way of saying it?

thanks again! love your videos
