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.

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!

Aw, I sleep very well all night , but i wake up at the morning if my room is light. It's really difficult for me because i fell sleep so late and i wake up early when sun is going on. so i sleep about 3-5 hours

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?
