be high time 該是時候做某某事

說明:

主詞要用 impersonal subject “it”,動詞用 ve。high time 亦可寫成 about timehigh timeabout time 比較,high time 較有壓迫感,指某事不能再拖延了。about time 則可解作「時間剛剛好做某件事。」

例子:

I have been laid off for two months. It is high time for me to find a new job.

It is about time for you to get a new job, honey. We are running out of money.
