  • Welcome to BBC Learning English.

  • I'm Sam, and today we are looking at the difference between every time and all the time.

  • We use all the time to talk about something that always or usually happens.

  • For example, many people think that:

  • In the UK, it rains all the time.

  • And yes, it does rain a lot.

  • We use every time, when we are talking about each individual time something happens.

  • For example:

  • Every time I go to the beach, it rains.

  • We don't know how often I go to the beach, but each individual time I go, it rains.

  • There! We hope you learn something every time you watch one of these videos!
