Are noon and midnight AM or PM? Noon is noon and midnight is midnight. These 2 notions are neither AM nor PM. AM stands for ante meridiem, which can be translated as "before midday". If you say: "It is 12 am" you practically saying that it is 12 o'clock before midday. But 12 o'clock is already midday! The same thing is true for 12 pm - it just does not exist.
Telling the time: easiest way to learn how to tell it. It is quite useful to know a couple of simple words that can make you sound more sophisticated: a quarter and a half. Instead of saying: "It is ten fifteen" you might say that it is a quarter past ten. "It is half past 4" sounds better than "It is 4:30" as well.
