時間的重要性之一,就是提醒我們「某些時候該做某些事」,英文句型可以這樣表達:It is (high/about) time that S + V-ed...
 
此句型帶有假設語氣,意思是「是時候該做某事」,用來強調某事或動作「早該」發生了。that 子句中的動詞時態應使用過去式,表示行為「該做而尚未做」,且 that 可省。time 之前可使用 high 或 about加強「早該…」的語氣:
 
🔰 It's time that you went to bed. It's already past midnight!
你該上床睡覺了,都已經過了午夜!
 
🔰 Oliver's flight is tonight, so it's about time that he finished packing.
奧力佛的班機就在今晚,所以他早該打包好行李了。
 
🔰 The workers are on strike because they think it's high time that they were given a raise.
工人們在罷工,因為他們認為自己早該被加薪了。
