for saying half hour we use media and for fifteen minutes we use cuarto por ejemplo:

que hora es? you will say :

8:30- son las ocho y media

1:30- es la una y media

4:15- son las cuatro y cuarto

7:15-son las siete y cuarto

for telling time after 30 minutes we use menos like:

10:45- son las once menos cuarto (fifteen minutes to 11)

8:55- son las nueve menos y cinco (5 minutes to 9)

It's 8:30 = son las ocho y media

o

son las ocho y treinta.

Use son for every hour except the 1:00 hour, where you use es.

Es la una y cuarto: It's 1:15

For past tense, use eran o era.

Eran las ocho y media: it was 8:30.

Era la una menos diez: It was ten minutes till one.
