Once you have learnt to count from one to ten, it is easy to learn to tell the time in Romanian.

In Romanian, we say *It is hour one*, *it is hour two* and so on.

What time is it? | Cât e ceasul? |

It is 1 o'clock | Este ora unu |

It is 2 o'clock | Este ora două |

It is 3 o'clock | Este ora trei |

It is 4 o'clock | Este ora patru |

It is 5 o'clock | Este ora cinci |

It is 6 o'clock | Este ora şase |

It is 7 o'clock | Este ora şapte |

It is 8 o'clock | Este ora opt |

It is 9 o'clock | Este ora nouă |

It is 10 o'clock | Este ora zece |

It is 11 o'clock | Este ora unsprezece |

It is 12 o'clock | Este ora doisprezece |

If you are counting in Romanian, the word for *two* is **doi**.

When telling the time the word for *two* is **Două**. This is because the word for *two* agrees with the word for hour which is feminine.

The basic grammar explains adjectival agreements in more detail.
