While you need time itself for consistent German practice, actually knowing how to tell time in German can also help you become fluent.

It may seem rudimentary at first, but this skill actually ties into all of your German learning.

You see, it’s nice to know when your favorite German TV show is on, and you may just want to schedule a reading date with yourself or a session with your exchange partner at a certain time during the day.

Plus, whenever you first step foot on German-speaking soil, the time is something that any stranger may ask you for—so being able to immediately interact with native speakers by answering will be a huge confidence builder.

Therefore, German time learning is essential to becoming fluent in an efficient manner. So if you haven’t yet learned how to tell time in German, keep reading!

  • It assists with business interactions, social situations, school, dating and more, as you can hear and read when appointments and events are. (And then get to them on time!)

  • You adjust to both the 12-hour and 24-hour clocks because both are used in Germany.

  • It becomes easier to travel with German-speaking people, as you can communicate your calendar to everyone and keep folks on task.
