盼盼:We talked about the time. Teacher Wang asked “现在几点?” which means “What′s the time now?” “几点” is used to ask the time. Then I answered “现在晚上七点二十五分。” which means “It is seven twenty-five now.”
Tom: Can you tell me more about the time?
盼盼:Ok. “七点二十五分” means “seven twenty-five”. You should add “点” to the number of the hour. “分” can be add or not . but when the number of minute is less than ten, “分”must be add to the number.
Tom: So I can say “7点30分” to express “seven thirty” and “7点四十五分” to express “seven forty-five”, right?
盼盼:Yeah, you are right. But we also have some other expressions for the time what you said. They are mentioned in the dialogue between Teacher Wang and me.

盼盼:I doesnn′t matter. I will tell you. Teacher Wang asked me “你晚上几点睡觉?” which means “When do you go to bed at evening?”. I said “十二点半。” which means “half past 12”. Teacher Wang asked again “你什么时候起床?”which means “When do you get up?”. “什么时候” also can be used to ask the time. Then my reply is “八点差一刻起床。” which means “ I get up at a quarter past 8”.
Tom: Oh, I get it. So the time what I said also can be read “7点半” and“八点差一刻”,right?
盼盼:Yeah. At last , Teacher Wang said “太晚了。” which means ‘’too late”
Tom: I agree with Teacher Wang. You should go to bed earlier ,rise earlier and do some more physical exercise,
