To tell time is one of the basic activities that one needs to do. It is a general activity that we perform on a daily basis. It is how we tell if we are submitting our work before the deadline or if we are late to a party. Though it is one of the easiest things to learn, many people have difficulty telling the time.
Generally, we learn the act of telling time when we are young. Since it is known that we learn things faster and easily when we are young, there’s no need to explain why it’s a good practice to do so. While people use their mobile phones to tell time nowadays, it is necessary to learn to tell time using analogue clocks.
