Telling Time

Telling time in Japanese isn't that hard, in fact it's easier than English (my opinion).

First you will get some simple explanation to what you will encounter.
-ji - O'clock
-fun, -pun - Minute
han - Half
ima - Now
nani-ji - What time
gozen - A.M.
gogo - P.M.
Ima nan-ji desu ka? - What time is it now?

Here is the actual time telling part.
1-ji - 1 o'clock
2-ji - 2 o'clock

7-ji - 7 o'clock
8-ji - 8 o'clock

1-ji han - Half past 1 (lit. 1 o'clock half)
