Hello Solomon! My name is Korbinian. As you probably know already, I am from Germany. You wanted to know what time it is here when it is 10 o’clock where you live. This depends on the time of the year. During summer we are one hour behind you. This means that it is 9 o’clock when it is 10 o’clock for you. During the winter the clock is set one hour back. Then we are two hours behind you so it is 8 o’clock.

02A_Irina_Katherl_AT / 16_Irina_Katherl_AT
Hello, I am Irina and I am 11 years old. I answer the question, how we children live here in Germany. Actually it is different for every child but usually a week for us ist like this: We go to school from Monday to Friday in the morning. Afterwards, in the afternoon, it is different. Many meet with friends. Others have hobbies which they are active in or they do sports. On the weekend we don’t have to go to school. That is time off. We can do what we want. Some make day trips, others do something with their parents. It is simply different how this works for every child in Germany. But his quite an average course for every child.
