Tiempo y fecha

En Los Estados Unidos se dice "1/10/2009" por "primer de enero", pero miraba que hablantes españoles dicen "10/1/2009" por la fecha misma, es verdad o me equivocaba?

Tambien, el tiempo, en USA se usa reloj con doces horas (12:00 AM / 4:00 PM), ¿en España se usa reloj con veinticuatras horas? ( 12:00 / 16:00)

gracias

Sí, es verdad, pero no solo los españoles. Los británicos también usan ese formato de fecha: día/mes/año.
PM=post meridian AM=Ante meridian. Alguna gente lo entiende pero es anglosajón y no utilizado por los españoles. De hecho me imagino que el uso de PM y AM en USA es por costumbre ya que el meridiano está en Greenwich. No sé si se usa en Sud/centroamérica.

Primero que nada, en chile se dice la hora (horario) y fecha. Tiempo se usa para el weather.

En chile se usan las 24 horas tambien, para todo lo que sale oficial atraves de las noticias o publicidad del periodico o television, radio etc.

La gente usa indistintamente los dos sistemas, am/pm o 24 horas.

Really the date is not important of the way that you set them, you can set them of both ways, but the people in my country likely set them of the following way.

20-01-2007

And about the hour the time is written as you can set it, for example 12 - 24 hours is military time, or 1 - 12 midnight is the more normal written in my country.

I hope this can help you.

Sincerely yours.

So if you were in the military (which uses military time of course ) and it was 1 PM you would say

13:00 hours because after 12:00 (noon) the hour becomes 13:00 and it goes up to 24:00 (which is midnight)

For anything before noon (12) one would say 05:00 (O five hundred hours)

So right now in military time (where I live) it is 19:58 hours (nineteen hundred fifty eigth hours) (7:58 PM)
