#1 Best Guide For Telling The Time In Georgian

Time is a gift, and we shouldn’t be wasting it. No matter what country you visit, everyone values time, so learning the concepts of telling the time in Georgian is a must. In today’s post, we will walk you through the best words and phrases to use so that you can easily say out the time like a total native speaker. If you are ready for that, then let’s get started!

Time In The Georgian Language

Telling the time in the Georgian language is unique to other foreign languages. For instance, in the English language, when the clock displays the time 10:45, it is translated to ‘ten forty-five,’ meaning it has the exact translation and interpretation.

In the Georgian Language, telling time is influenced by the British system. For example, instead of telling the time of 2:45, Georgians will say ‘quarter till 3’. This means that the right and left halves of the clock are interpreted and distinguished in another way. Below are simple explanations on how the Georgian speak or say the time in their language:

  • The first half of the clock (2:01-2:30) adopts the name of the next hour.

Example:  2:10 (two ten) is 3’s 10 minutes (სამის ათი წუთი – samis ati tsuti) in the Georgian language

  • In telling the half-past hour, they say ‘_____ half’

Example: 2:30 (two thirty) is ‘3’s half

  • The left half of the clock (2:31-2:59) is different from the first half of the clock. Georgians use the phrase ‘that lacks’ (რომ აკლია – rom aklia) in between the hour and the minutes.

Example: 2:35 is 3 that lacks 25 minutes (სამს რომ აკლია ოცდახუთი წუთი – sams rom aklia otsdakhuti tsuti)

  • The Georgian time is different from the Georgian words for numbers. Instead of saying ‘oერთი’ (one or erti) for one o’clock, they called it პირველი (first or pirveli).
