The traditional English language method expresses time as ‘minutes past’ and ‘minutes to’ the hour. This method is used in many countries alongside the 12/24 hour format for timetables.

Step 1:

Read the number at the end of the long hand

Step 2:

Say which side it’s pointing to: ‘minutes to’ red side, ‘minutes past’ green side
