 04:00 > It's four o'clock in the afternoon.

1. Em inglês, as horas são sempre precedidas de um verbo no singular: It's one o'clock (É uma hora);
It's two o'clock (São duas horas).

2. Os americanos não costumam utilizar a expressão half past (e meia). Tratam as horas como se fossem digitais. Contudo, utilizam a quarter past (e um quarto) e a quarter to (menos um quarto).

3. Não se utiliza oralmente o relógio de 24 horas, excepto no caso de horários de transportes públicos.

4. Para dizer que são 03:00 e não 15:00, podemos usar "three o'clock in the afternoon". 17:30 seria "half past five in the afternoon" e para indicar 23:00 prefere-se "eleven o'clock in the evening".

5. Para diferenciar as horas da manhã e da tarde, utilizamos a.m. (ante meridiem, antes do meio-dia) ou p.m. (post meridiem, após o meio-dia):

Ex: He arrives home at 08:00 a.m. (Ele chega a casa às 8 da manhã); He arrives home at 07:56 p.m.
(Ele chega a casa às 07:56 da noite). Quando se utiliza a.m. ou p.m. não se pode usar o'clock (em ponto).
Ex: He arrives home at three o'clock in the afternoon (He arrives home at 3 pm).

6. PONTUALIDADE: Para indicar que se "chega a tempo”, utiliza-se on time: Lana is never on time (A Lana nunca chega a horas).
