he verb ser is used to express the time of day. Use es when referring to "one o'clock" and use son when referring to all other hours. Es la una. It's one o'clock. Son las dos. It's two o'clock. The feminine article (la, las) is used before the hour because it refers to "la hora." Es la una. It's one o'clock. Son las dos. It's two o'clock. Minutes can be added to the hour using the word y (and). Es la una y cinco. It's five minutes past one. Son las tres y doce. It's twelve minutes past three. Minutes can be subtracted from the hour using the word menos (less). Es la una menos cinco. It's five minutes till one. Son las tres menos doce. It's twelve minutes till three.
