[PART 1]

Hello, everyone.

Welcome to this ‘Time Expressions’ video.

In this video, we are going to talk about how to express the time of day.

Ok, it’s very simple.

And you would talk about the ‘time of day’ to express your routine; what you do in the different times of day.

Let’s take a look at the board.

I have a question.

“When do you…?”

And let’s make a question.

“When do you wake up?”

Ok…

“When do you wake up?”

And you want to express the ‘time of day’.

Very easy.

“In the morning.”

“When do you wake up?”

“In the morning.”

Make sure you have ‘the’.

Don’t say “in morning”.

“In the morning.”

“When do you wake up?”

“In the morning.”

“When do you take a shower?”

“In the morning.”

“When do you go to work?”

“In the morning.”

Ok…

Ahh…let’s look at the next one.

“In the afternoon.”

“When do you take a nap?”

Ok, you take a quick sleep.

“When do you take a nap?”

“In the afternoon.”

Ok, I like to take a nap, “In the afternoon.”

“When do you go home?”

After work, “When do you go home?”

“In the evening.”

“When do you eat dinner?”

“In the evening.”

“When do you watch TV?”

“In the evening.”

Ok…

So, these are very easy ways to express the different types…the different times of day.

Make sure you have “in the”.

Alright, let’s look at the next ones.

Ahh…

They’re using ‘at’.

Ok…

So this first one is using ‘”at night”.

“In the evening.”

“At night.”

Very similar.

But, “In the evening” is usually talking about early evening.

Ok…

Around 6p.m. to 10p.m.

Ok, that’s the evening time.

Relaxing time.

“At night” is probably after 10p.m.

You know…you’re going into 1a.m., 2a.m., 3a.m.

Very late time.

Ok, that’s usually when we say, “At night”.

Alright…

So…

“When do you….?”

Well, if I said, “When do you go home form work?”

And you said, “In the evening.”

Ok, I know it’s early.

But if you said…if I asked “When do you go home form work?” and you said “At night”, I would think “Oh, very late”.

Maybe after 10p.m.

Alright…

You have to be very careful walking on the street ‘at night’.

Alright, the next two are very exact times.

Ok, “At noon”, “At midnight”.

‘Noon’ is only 12:00p.m.

That is ‘noon’.

So, “When do you have lunch?”

You can say, “At noon”.

Alright…

‘Midnight’ is only 12a.m.

Ok, very late.

“When do you go to bed?”

“At midnight.”

Ok…

Very very late.

Only…only 12p.m.

Only 12a.m.

They’re very exact times.

Alright, so these are different ways to express the ‘times of day’.

Let’s take a look at a few examples.

3:25 [Part 2 – Example Sentences]

Ok, let’s look at these examples.

The first one.

“I exercise in the morning.”
“I exercise in the morning.”

The next one.

“My lunchtime is at noon.”
“My lunchtime is at noon.”

The next one.

“I like to go swimming in the afternoon.”
“I like to go swimming in the afternoon.”

And the next one.

“I eat dinner in the evening.”
“I eat dinner in the evening.”

And the next one.

“I eat ramyeon at midnight.”
“I eat ramyeon at midnight.”

And the last example.

“Be careful walking a lone at night.”
“Be careful walking a lone at night.”

4:29 [Part 3]

Ok, I hope you understand how to express the different ‘times of day’ in English.

Uhm…I’m going to ask you a question now.

“When do you study English?”

Ok…

“What time of day do you study English?”

“When do you study English?”

Ahh…I..I suggest the best time to study English is in the morning.

Ok…ahh…

In the afternoon is not so good.

A lot of my students are always very tired in the afternoon.

In the evening is ok.

But, never never at night.

That’s too late.

Alright…

So, I hope you understand these time expression.

See you next video.
