Learning to tell time on an analog clock is a valuable skill that can assist people in better understanding and navigating their daily calendars and appointments.

Additionally, learning to tell time on an analog clock can help people enhance their capacity to comprehend and analyze visual information and their spatial thinking skills. 

It can also help them strengthen their mental math skills, as they may need to calculate how many minutes have passed since a certain time or how much time is left for a specific event. 

Overall, learning how to tell time on an analog clock is a vital and practical ability that may help people in various situations.
