#EngClass: Telling the Time in English

Bahasa inggris tidak memakai sistem 24 jam seperti yang kita gunakan, melainkan:
a.m. (ante meridiem) dan p.m. (post meridiem).
Dalam percakapan, am/pm jarang digunakan kecuali benar-benar perlu untuk menjelaskan pagi/sore.
Prinsipnya adalah sebagai berikut:
1. Pukul 00:00 (dini hari) = 12 am or midnight
2. Pukul 00:01 (dini hari) = 12:01 am (one minute past midnight)
3. Pukul 07.45 = 07:45 am (15 minutes to eight)
4. Pukul 08:00 = 8 am or 8 o’clock
5. Pukul 08.15 = 08:15 am (15 minutes/quarter past eight)
6. Pukul 08.30 = 08:30 am (30 minutes/half past eight)
7. Pukul 12:00 (siang) = 12 pm or noon
8. Pukul 12:01 (siang) = 12:01 pm (one minute past noon)
9. Pukul 14:00 = 2 pm or 2 o’clock
10. Pukul 18:00 = 6 pm or 6 o’clock
11. Pukul 23:59 = 11:59 pm (one minute to midnight)
12. O’clock merupakan singkatan dari “of the clock”, hanya digunakan ketika menunjukkan jam 1 – 12 tepat.
