Hallo Roger


It is something to get used to in South Africa and speaking Afrikaans!


We say 'half sewe' but mean ... half past six.


Half vyf

Half past four.


I was an hour early for a meeting in the UK as she said, she you half six which means half past six in the UK but half past six in SA... At least I was early!


Thank you for the question

Studying the 'Talking about Time' lesson, I note that 'Dit is nou half sewe' is translated to 'It is half past six now'. If I have been understanding correctly, 'Dit is nou half sewe' means "It is half past seven now', not 'half past six'?
