To Be All Set To Go




Example 1

Gina: Are you almost ready to go? Our flight leaves in 2 hours!

Kevin: I'll be all set to go in 5 minutes. I have to finish packing my shoes.

Gina: I hope we don't miss our flight because of your shoes!

Kevin: Ok, I'm all set!


Example 2:

Ok, we have our bottles of water, hiking boots, and sunblock. We are all set to go on our hike!

to be all set to go = to be ready to go

This expression is often shortened "be all set" meaning "to be ready"
It can also be used with other verbs: be all set to + verb.. for example I'm all set to take the test.

This idiom was taken from LSI's book titled Speaking Transitions. This book is used to teach Level 4 Speaking classes at LSI schools. For more information please visit: www.languagesystems.com
