    Re: advance/late

    Korea is one time zone to the east of the Philippines. So Korea's time is one hour later than that in the Philippines.

    We use the terms advance and turn back when the clocks are changed for Daylight Saving. So for Summer they are advanced by one hour and for Winter they are turned back by one hour.

    Re: advance/late

    You mean we talk of advance/late in terms of the time zone and not of the actual time that we see in the clock?

    Re: advance/late

    If you are talking about times in different regions of the world, then the lateness relates to the position of the countries. We say one country's time is one hour later or one hour earlier than another's

    I am not sure what you really meant by the actual time on the clock. If my clock shows a time that is an hour less than your clock, we would say it is slow. If it shows a time that is one hour more than your clock, we would say it is fast.

    No - Korean time is one hour later than Philippine time.

    The terms fast and slow only relate to time in the same place.

    Re: advance/late

    So Korean time is one hour later or earlier than Philippine time. And our time compared to theirs is an hour (more)advanced than their time.

    A = 8am
    B = 9am
    C = 10am

    As time is an hour advanced than that of Bs time and 2 hours advanced than that of Cs, while Cs time is an hour later than Bs time and 2 hours later than that of As.
    Bs time is and hour advanced than that of Cs and and hour later than that of As.
