Vocabulary to Help When Talking about the Time in Spanish
When talking about the time of day in Spanish, it is often important to add some vocabulary to your sentences in order to give the other person more clarification. We have included a long list of vocabulary that you can learn and use. Listen in Spanish and learn how to ask: What time is it?, or say “in the morning”, “in the afternoon” or “on the dot”.
We are not stopping with just the added vocabulary however. You can also learn some common expressions used when referring to a time. Some examples are: “yesterday”, “overnight”, “in a little while” and “as soon as”. Learning some of these simple expressions is a great way to dramatically improve your conversational ability in Spanish.
Enjoy learning Spanish!
