みなさん,

What time is it right now as you are reading this? :mrgreen: Bonus points if you write it in kanji!

Hello!
Konnichiwa!
Can I use time from 00:00 to 24:00?
Instead of saying “gogo ku ji”, say “jyuukyuu ji”.
Thanks!

Valeria san,
Konnichiwa. :smile:
I am sorry the rule is not what you mentioned.
1,3,6 take pun and 2,4,5,7 and 9 take fun.
8 can take both of them.
1:38 nis ‘いちじさんじゅうはっぷん’ and ‘いちじさんじゅうはちふん.’

Hello! If it correct if I say にちじちじさんじゃうはちふん for 1:38?

avatar valeria

So we use ふん when it’s an odd number and ぷん when it’s an even number?

Karan-san,
konnichiwa! :smile:
We add ‘gozen’ if it’s morning and ‘gogo’ if it’s afternoon, before telling the time.
So, if it’s 1:20 a.m. now, it’s ‘gozen ichi-ji nijuppun desu’. :wink:
