0:22 It's 7: 57 P.M.
0:25 Uff...It's only three minutes to 8 P.M.!
0:29 I told you, Bethany is always late.
0:33 Yeah. And to think she was supposed to arrive at 20 minutes past 7...
0:37 You mean 7:20?
0:41 Yeah. I thought she'd be here by 8 at least. When will the gates open?
0:46 At exactly 5 minutes after 8.
0:51 I think Bethany already knows that. She'll be here before 8:05 for sure.
1:01 After I began using this digital watch I became more precise with time.
1:05 I'm often confused between ‘quarter to' and ‘quarter of'.
1:09 I can help you! ‘Quarter to' simply means 15 minutes to eight
1:13 or quarter to eight means it's 15 minutes before eight. Quarter of eight means 7: 45.

1:48 Not a big deal! Half an hour is not much.
1:51 I'm never late. It counts!
1:55 Suzie is often late by an hour! She arrives at the office around 10 A.M.
2:00 Let her be so, Celine. I don't have to be late because Suzie is late.
2:11 I had a scary dream last night. I woke up at 1AM.
2:14 You mean 1 in the morning?!
2:17 1 AM is always morning, dude. 1 PM is in the afternoon.
2:22 What about 12 o'clock? Is it PM or AM?
2:26 12 AM is midnight and 12 PM is noon or midday.
2:31 Right. So PM starts from noon to 12 AM.
2:36 Yup. In the same way, AM starts from midnight to 12 PM!
2:40 Oh! This Ante Meridian and Post Meridian thing is so confusing.
2:46 Not anymore I hope!
2:53 And to think she was supposed to arrive at 20 minutes past 7...
3:02 She'll be here before 8:05 for sure.
3:10 quarter to eight means it's 15 minutes before eight.
