On Time, In Time

Of course, here we are again to discuss two expressions that sometimes bring confusion to students of English as a Second Language or ESL. 

What's the difference between ON TIME and IN TIME? 

On time means you are not late. You arrive at the appointed time. If you and I agree to meet at the airport at 8:00, and you get there at 8:00, you are on time.

In time has a different meaning. We use this when we refer to something that happens just before the last minute.

Example:

The bus was about to leave when I arrived at the terminal. Whew! I arrived just in time!

Thanks! See you again next time!
