Telling Time in Spanish: What Time Is It?

In Spanish you can ask for the time in several ways. The following are the most common ones:

¿Qué hora es?: the word "es" refers to a single hour. If it's one O'clock, the correct answer is es la una. (It's one O'clock).

Another way to ask the time in Spanish is ¿Qué horas son?: the word "son" is the plural form of "es", and it's used from 2 O'clock onwards. The correct answer to this question is Son las _____ (and you insert the correct time in the blank).

Yet, another way of asking for the time in Spanish is by saying ¿Qué horas tiene?, which roughly translates into "what time have you got?". And you can answer with son las _____ (and you insert the correct time in the blank), or es la una(it's one O'clock).
