On time / In time

 
 
As duas locuções “ON TIME” e “IN TIME” costumam gerar bastante confusão para o aluno brasileiro. “ON TIME” significa “pontual”, “na hora prevista” e demais sinônimos. “IN TIME”, por sua vez, quer dizer “com tempo suficiente”, “um pouco antes do horário marcado”. 

 Examples: 

- What time does the meeting start tomorrow? 
- At 9 am, but please be on time. 
(- A que horas começa a reunião amanhã? 
- Às 9 horas da manhã, mas, por favor, chegue na hora. )
- I’ve sent Carol a Christmas card. I hope it arrives in time. 
(-Enviei um cartão de Natal para a Carol. Espero que ele chegue a tempo.)
