    Re: using the time format

    In the US, we use a colon when designating the time:
    11:00AM or 11:00PM. Also, 11AM is acceptable.

    Re: using the time format

    (I am not a teacher) Normally there would be a space between the time of day and the (AM) or (PM). As Ouisch said, in the US we use a colon. However all of these abbreviations are used and are technically correct:

    11:00 AM
    11:00 A.M.
    11:00 am
    11:00 a.m.

    (reference AM and PM and the "Abbreviations section of this page: 12-hour clock - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia )
