On Time – In Time: Simple English Video One Minute Lesson

Oooh. It’s Zeynep. Hi Zeynep. Hi Vicki and Jay. How are you getting on with the video? Oh, the video. We’re a little behind schedule. Will it be ready in time for the show? Can we have a few more days? I don’t know if that’s possible. I’ll have to ask Zehra. Zehra. Oh no, not Zehra. The deadline is Friday! You must finish on time! We – we will, Zehra. We will. Good. That kid is scary. Yeah, let’s hurry up and get to work. It’s two o’clock. Yes. Jay, come and sit down. I want to start this meeting on time. If something happens on time, it happens at the correct time; the time that was scheduled. Oh, the train’s coming. It’s right on time. The time that was scheduled – it’s not late and it’s not early. Have Pattersons paid us? No, they haven’t. The invoice is due at the end of the month. Don’t worry. They always pay on time. Were you going to bed already? It’s only eight o’clock. Yeah, I’ve got a conference call early tomorrow morning. Oh, that’s right – with Europe. If I don’t go to bed now, I’ll never wake up in time. Sleep well. If I don’t go to bed now, I’ll never wake up in time. Am I in time for the meeting? Yeah. Don’t worry, we’ve got ten minutes. I couldn’t find a parking space. C’mon, let’s go in. If we’re in time for something we’re not late. In time means with enough time to spare, before the last moment. Hi, I’m home. Oh, you’re just in time. Just in time for what? Dancing with the Stars is going to start in three minutes. On time – the correct time. In time- not late. Hi Vicki and Jay. Hey Zeynep. We’re ready to send the video. Oh, well done. Yeah, we worked all night to get it finished. Oh, you poor things. The show is tomorrow, right? Yes. Good, you’ll get it in time. That’s great! Oh , Zehra wants to speak to you. Did you finish on time? Yes, yes we did, Zehra. We’re going to send it now. Good. I’ll speak to you later then. Whew, thank goodness we finished on time.

    I loved the video. I sure need to learn to do things on time. Thank you, Vicki, Jai, Jase, Zehara and Zeynep for helping me understand the concept.
