Daniel and Hana talk about how much sleep they get and taking short naps.
Hana: So, how much do you sleep?
Daniel: Well I think I sleep a lot, usually at least 8 hours I think that's, that's the usual for me. How about you?
Hana: Oh really, about 6 hours I guess, if I have 6 hours that's enough.
Daniel: 6 hours, is that enough?
Hana: Yes and normally because I sleep late and I have to get up early so 6 hours is enough for me.
Daniel: Wow if I sleep 6 hours I would definitely take a nap after lunch. Do you take naps?
Hana: Well it depends. If I don't have any class I would sleep but normally I don't.
Daniel: Wow, how about the weekends do you also sleep like 6 hours?
Hana: No I sleep a lot on Saturdays because I normally didn't have anything to do so I will recharge my batteries and just sleep all morning.
Daniel: How about Sundays?
Hana: On Sundays I normally get up early and do something and spend my Sundays with my friend or go out. How about you?
Daniel: Well, the bad thing is on Saturdays and Sundays I still get up quite early so I don't get to sleep more than the week but since I still, you know, sleep 8 hours every day so I think that's enough and if I'm tired from the week I think I can still take a nap and I will, you know, fix it, so yeah, I think I sleep a lot like more than a lot of people.
Hana: That's good.
Daniel: Yeah, it is.
that's enough / this is enough
If I have 6 hours, that's enough.
We use this phrase often in English to show we have all that we need of something. Notice the following:
- Would you like some more pizza? / No, that's enough.
- Do you need more money? ? No, this is enough.
I would definitely take a nap after lunch.
A nap is a short sleep done during the day. Notice the following:
- I often take a two-hour nap on the weekend.
- Most young children take a nap every day.
If I don't have any class I would sleep, but normally I don't.
Normally means 'usually' and it is very common in spoken English. Notice the following:
- I normally drive to work.
- She normally eats lunch at her desk.
recharge my batteries
I will recharge my batteries and just sleep all morning.
This is a common phrase that means to get rest and become energized. Notice the following:
- I usually recharge my batteries on the weekend.
- After a long day of work, I recharge my batteries by taking a long bath.
I still get up quite early, so I don't get to sleep in.
When you get to do something, you have permission to do it or you have a chance to do it. Notice the following:
- I get to travel a lot for my job.
- She does not get to spend much time with her family.
