Telling the time in Chinese is very similar in structure to English. Here you'll learn all aspects and different possible ways of saying the time in Mandarin Chinese, including the words for half past and a quarter past. You'll also learn how to specify a.m. or p.m. if necessary.

Leo is working late when Dani stops by his desk. Dani asks what time he will work until. Leo takes the opportunity to find out how to say the time in Mandarin Chinese. Dani also teaches Leo how to include the time in sentences in Chinese, which will be very useful when working to tight deadlines in an office envoironment!

Although China theoretically spans five different time zones, only one time zone has been in place for the whole country since 1949. There is also no daylight savings currently in place in China. Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan are also in the same time zone, and do not have daylight savings either. Singapore too is in the same time zone with no daylight savings. So the time in Chinese speaking countries is always the same, UTC+8:00
