Lesson 5

Lesson 5

Let’s learn to tell the time, months of the year and seasons in English.

We measure the time in seconds, minutes and hours.

There are 24 hours in a day.

There are 60 minutes in an hour.

There are 60 seconds in a minute.

time

 

 

 

 

 

When talking about the time, to show whether it’s morning or later we use am and pm.

pm

Now tell me what time you get up in the morning, and what time you go to bed.   You can choose your answer from the nearest hour, but don’t use the 24-hour-clock, keep exercising.

Months of the year

months

 

How many days are there in a month?

April, June, September and November has 30 days. All the rest have 31 days except for February that has 28 each year and 29 in each leap year.

For months we use the preposition “in”.

For example:

Christmas is in December.

In Kerala it rains a lot in June.

My birthday is in May.

 

! The names of months always begin with a CAPITAL letter. !

 

 

The Seasons

The seasons are winter, spring, summer, and autumn.

Each season has different weather, and each season lasts, roughly, three months.

– Americans call autumn as fall. I suppose it’s because a lot of leaves fall.

We use in proposition for seasons also.

For example:

In Russia it is cold in (the) winter.

! Have you noticed that spring, summer, autumn and winter start with a small letter? The names of days and months always begin with a CAPITAL letter but seasons don’t.

Practice your English

“My favourite season is …………………………………. because I like ………………………………..”
