来得及 / 来不及 Láidejí / láibují

The idea is ‘be able to make it, be on time’.

明天交报告,我才写了一半,估计是来不及(完成)了。 Míngtiān jiāo bàogào, wǒ cái xiěle yí bàn, gūjì shì láibují (wán chéng) le.
‘Tomorrow I’m handing in the report, but I have just written half of it; I estimate that I can’t completed it on time.’

火车10点才开,你现在赶过去还来得及。 Huǒchē shí diǎn cái kāi, nǐ xiànzài gǎnguòqù hái láidejí.
‘The trains departs at 10:00; you’ll still be on time if you hurry.’

下周的会议,现在改主题,来得及还是来不及? Xià zhōu de huìyì, xiànzài gǎi zhǔtí, láidejí hái shì láibují?
‘Is there enough time to change the theme, as the meeting will be held next week?’
