You asked: Which phrase represents a half hour when telling time in Spanish?

If it’s half past the hour in Spanish, use the phrase y media; If it’s a quarter past the hour, use the phrase y cuarto; If it’s a quarter until the hour, use the phrase menos cuarto.

When the minutes are after 30 what happens to the hour in Spanish?

I have learned that when telling time if it’s past 30 you would say the next hour minus the amount of minutes it will take to reach that hour. For example if it’s 4:40 I learned to say: Son las cinco menos veinte. However, I was doing a lesson on here and the instructor said 9:50: Son las nueve y cincuenta.

How do you express half past the hour?

At minute 45, we say it’s “quarter to” the next hour. For example, at 5:45, we say it’s “quarter to six” (or 15 minutes before 6:00). At minute 30, we say it’s “half past”. So at 9:30, we would say it’s “half past nine” (or half an hour after 9:00).
