    Hi Hanka.
    I'm not a teacher but I'd say: A bottle of 0.5 litre(US) or liter(UK).
    Hope it helps.

    Sorry mlitroncho but you have it the wrong way around, 'litre' UK, 'liter' US.

    Half a litre.

    Yes, sorry I made a mistake as I was writting it, litre(UK). Sorry. Hanka take a look at this thread and see wether it can help you: 0.5 litres or 0.5 litre. - WordReference Forums.

    Neither.

    A 0.5 litre bottle or a half-litre bottle
