Michael: Then comes the phrase...
Alisha: "I can't wait!"

Hello Jianghui,


Thank you for your comment.


If you hear "but it's almost time' - this means the time for an upcoming or anticipated event is about to begin. For example, if you are at a concert and your friend leaves to go to the bathroom minutes before the band starts you might say "But it's almost time for the band to start!"


I hope this helps.


Cheers,

Eva
