Dire l’heureIn French-speaking countries, the 24-hour clock system is generally used.
We use et demie (half past), et quart (a quarter past), and moins le quart (a quarter to).
We can also say:
Il est 3 heures de l’après-midi (= il est 15 heures) It’s 3 o’clock in the afternoon.
Note: We use il est to tell the time (and not c’est).
