It’s time…


  • It’s time for me to leave. (= it’s time for somebody)
  • It’s 7 o’clock. It’s time I made coffee.

Although we use it’s time+past, the meaning is present, not past.

  • She is so lazy. It’s time she did her work.

When we say it’s time somebody did something, it mean’s that they should have already done it or started it. We can use this structure to criticise or complain.

  • John is a really good singer. But it’s about time he did something instead of singing whole day.

When we add about, it makes criticism even stronger.
