It is one o’clock. 한 시예요. As covered in my post about counting units, you tell time by saying hour + counting unit 시 + verb 예요. Practice native Korean numbers with a game to tell time.
I’ve been studying numbers for 7 weeks now, so I am fairly certain I know them, but I am still slow to recall and learned them in order. For a refresher, refer to these blog posts:
- Numbers dancing in my head
- Korean Drama number flashcards
- Counting Units
- Star Wars flashcards 1 – 10
- Linkwords Sino-Korean numbers
- Native Korean 10 – 90 flashcards
