At What Time Does The Train Depart?


Imagine you are talking to a relative, a friend, colleague or a business associate about an impending train journey to La Coruña. You might have even have asked that person if he/ she could take you to the station. That person wants to ask : at what time does the train to La Coruña depart?

He/ she could say to you:
¿A qué hora sale el tren para La Coruña?


The question is a straight forward one. Your answer depends only on what you want to say about the departure time of the train to La Coruña. Maybe you want to chose between saying that:
  • It leaves at 13:45
  • It leaves in five minutes
  • You don't know when it leaves, you need to find out

Here are some examples which deal with those basic possibilities:
  • Sale a las dos menos cuarto (it leaves at 13:45)
  • Sale dentro de cinco minutos (it leaves in five minutes)
  • No sé a que hora sale, tengo que averiguarlo (I don't know at what time it leaves, I need to find out)

Now you should practice answering the question:
¿A qué hora sale el tren para La Coruña?
