Hi Tim, I ran out to take a subway from my office, but I would like to run out for the airport and travel to NYC! OMG!!!

I would, too! It’s an exciting city! 🙂

Hi, Tim.
It seems to me that the difference is in the use of the preposition, when you say run out of, and run out to. Isn’t it?
By the way, in the article’s title we read run off. Do they mean the same, run out and run off?
Thanks for the tips. God bless you more and more.

Thank you, Sylvio! Oops! I made a mistake in the title. Like I said in the podcast, “run off” is “sair corrend” AWAY from someone or something. “Run out” is “sair correndo” to a place or out of a place. And, unfortunately, the preposition after “run off” isn’t helpful because I can say: “I ran out of the house” (Saí correndo da casa.)

My God!
 i´m late .I´d run out just to my enghish class .

Don’t want to be late for English class! 🙂
