Hello, I do not speak Chinese. I wonder if you have the same word order in Chinese we have in Hungarian. In Hungarian we say "it is morning six o'clock".
So you say: 它是在早上六点钟。 :confused: First the morning and then the time? Thanks.

    To make a complete statement, we can say 早上六点了。 ("Morning, 6 o'clock." -Adding 了 at the end.)
    We almost never use 它(it) to refer to an even or an abstract concept. We only use 它(it) to refer to an object or an animal.
    It is ok to say 时间是早上六点钟. (The time is morning 6 o'clock.) and "time" is deliberately stressed.
