An other question...sleep is a verb, we can say: "your brain takes longer to sleep" or "five top tips for sleeping well"

Hi again shamim ;)
Yes, that's right!
Sleep can be a verb but it can also be a noun. Take a look at our online dictionary to see all its uses. On the right-hand side of our website you will see a box that says Online dictionary. Type 'sleep' in there and then click Look it up.
Regards, Tina (LearnEnglish Teen Team)

Hi shamim!
In English we would say 'I fall asleep as soon as I go to bed'.
Asleep is an adjective after the verb in this sentence - take a look at our online definition for asleep.
Best wishes, Tina (LearnEnglish Teen Team)

Hello to every one..
Actually, I'm not sleeping so much...Because I'm always reading or playing to my computer before to sleep.
If somebody could tell me how to change my mind with my computer, it would be great..
Does reading before sleeping has any effect??

Thanks for your answer. =-)

Hey Katana!
There's many disadvantages of using computer or smartphone before going to sleep. But book reading before going to sleep is very useful. It helps you relax plus it helps improve your brain power. It increases your intelligence and helps you get a good sleep but using smartphone or tablet to read books before going to bed is not useful. It keeps you awake longer and it hurts your sleep. Hope it helped you!

Hello everyone!
I think maybe I didn't sleep well this week. I stayed up very late (It about 1.30 a.m) And I got up quite early (At about 5.50 a.m). It means everynight in last week, I just slept in 4 hours and 20 minutes. It's a very short time for my body relax. So, I fell tired and my eyes were puff up. I decided to try to sleep earlier . And I thought I'll have a healthy body again.

Sorry to hear this, bunny. I also stay up late but I don't feel tired because I often take a nap at noon.
But, could you tell me the reson why you stay up late ?
1) Study for exam
2) Online social network sites
3) finish your homework
4) watch late film ?
I have a unique tip for light sleepers : Reading the Literature textbook for 15 mins before going to bed. :)

They're the number 1,2 (but I only study English on Internet) and 3. I never watch any films in the school year. What about you?

Hello little bunny.
You're really a typical Vietnamese student. You're very studious. Do your parents have intention of letting you get into Hanoi medical university or Ho Chi Minh medical uni ? Or do you like to become a student of Foreign trade uni ?.

Yes, I also study online ( not only E but other subjects ), I try hard to catch up with online lessons ( Am I considered a hard working student ?), I don't watch film, too

Hey, Elsa
Do you take a nap at noon ?
Me too, sometimes, I sleep like a log at night if I forget to take a nap at noon.In contrary, if I sleep at noon, I stay up late and my eyes open as if they never closed.

I usually sleep late and it's very hard for me that wake up early in the morning! I'm an evening person. I need 8 or 9 hours for night's sleep. and usually tack a nap when I comeback home from school, if I sleep little at night my eyes puff up, and if I have bad night's sleep for long time (1 week or more) I'm depressed!

Yes, getting sound sleep is very crucial for a good health. Luckily, I usually fall asleep in 3 seconds as soon as I sink in bed: un, due, trios! ☆
You know, our brain is working even while we're sleeping. So, for me, eight /nine hour sleep is desirable!!☆

Hi dear Giang :))
I think I can explain....
It's very simple....Elsa means that she goes to sleep in just three seconds....very quickly
One(un)
Two(due)
Trios(Three)
One ,Two, and Three seconds.....:P
Is it okay :D
I guess this is the meaning of that expression :)
