In time to lớn...

A related variation on the phrase "in time" is "in time to" (also "with time to"), and indicates that you arrived or accomplished a task with time remaining, sufficient to lớn bởi vì something else.

I finished cooking dinner in time to take a shower before the guests arrived.

We got the kids in bed with time to watch a movie.

On time

Suggests that you arrived, or accomplished the desired task "exactly on schedule."

I arrived on time, at 8:00pm.

Although, the phrase "on time" is often used interchangeably with "in time" và it is probably rare that you would find a context where only one would be understood.

"In time" means various things but here it would mean with time to vì something. So, something like: "My appointment was a 8, but I arrived at 7:55, in time lớn wash my face before the meeting".

"On time" means that you arrived when you were supposed to: "My meeting was a 8, but I wasn"t exactly on time, I was 5 minutes early".

Xem thêm:

"In the niông xã of time" means without any time lớn spare. "I boarded the train in the niông chồng of time, just as the doors were closing".

I believe sầu that on time means at the planned time: neither late nor early.

For example, say you have class at 8 a.m., và you show up at 8 a.m. You would be on time.

However, in time means with enough time khổng lồ spare.

For example:

He is lucky the ambulance arrived in time. If it had arrived any later, he would have died.

"On time" implies keeping fixed schedule; example, if the office hour is 8:00 am & you always arrive in office at 8:00 am, then you are always on time. It also means keeping a planned schedule.

"In time" implies an event that was not planned or scheduled,example, if rebels are about to lớn kill someone và you arrived just at time of killing the person, then you arrived in time perhaps to save sầu the person. Another example could be, the doctor arrived in time lớn save sầu the dying patient.

In time means arriving a bit earlier then required time. For instance, I was supposed to attover a lesson at 10:00 AM, but I arrived at 9:56 AM.

On time means arriving exactly hour or a bit late. For example, I was supposed to lớn attover a lesson at 10:00 AM but I arrived at 10:00 AM or 10:05 AM.
