Ciao! How do you say 10:30? In the Numbers/Time lesson, it is presented in two ways: Le dieci e trenta.... and.... Le dieci e mezzo Are they both correct ways of saying 10:30? Grazie! Luigi

Ciao Luigi Yes both are correct Le dieci e trenta- 10:30 Le dieci e mezzo "Mezzo" means half, so 10 and half. Half past ten Mezzo can also mean "mid" in telling the time. So mezzogiorno is midday (half day) Mezzonotte is midnight You can also use the 24 hour clock, which in Italy I think is mainly used for timetables for buses, trains etc. So 10:30 would be le ventidue 2200hr Sono le ventidue- It's 10pm Spero che questa aiuta

Bravo Grahame this is correct! Just few corrections ... "Mezzanotte" is midnight So 10:00pm would be "le ventidue" ( 2200hr) Spero che ti sia di aiuto. Ciao
