games to practice telling time

, vocabulary practice for talking about time, events daily activities, time prepositions, and more.



This game focuses on telling time and talking about what time different events are, providing a learning/practice section, spelling section, conversation practice games, and grammar games for students. The games focus heavily on proper use of time prepositions making a distinction between when students need to use "at" or nothing at all. For help with "in", the months game. All of the listening activities are at natural speeds but students can listen to questions and answers as many times as they need to understand. These ESL learning applications follow the Speaking First ESL Curriculum from MES English.

The questions and answers for this game are as follows.

  • A: What time is it?
  • B: It's one o'clock.
  • A: Is it three?
  • B: Yes, it is./No, it's not.
  • A: What time does the bank open?
  • B: It opens at 9:00.
  • A: What time do you get home?
  • B: I get home at four o'clock.

Other notes:

  • There are several different questions and answers using first, second, and third person present tense.  Some of the questions use places around town like "the bank" or the "library", but knowledge of these isn't required to successfully complete the activities.
  • The spelling section will take a variety of answers, four, four o'clock, four o clock, and 4:00.  I haven't coded a lot of punctuation into the spelling games at the point of adding this game, so you can successfully enter "o clock" with a space and no apostrophe.
  • The game focus heavily on being able to form wh- questions with "when" and the usage of "at" with definite times for events.
