I didn't sleep well last night. The weather is too hot. I try to sleep but I couldn't. I left my bed and went out. Suddenly, I saw something in the corner of my room. I came close and touched it. And it jumped on my hand. It was a mouse. Terrible! I threw it away and ran into the bathroom. And I saw another mouse. What a horrible night! I couldn't sleep all night. And I was late for school this morning. I hate mouse. Tonight, I will check the room before going to bed. I wish I will sleep well tonight.

Excuse me, I've been trying to download the audio file, but it is not working.
I am using chrome and it says "this site can't be reached".
how can I solve this problem?

Hi Sea_Pearl,
Thanks for your comment. I've just checked and the audio file downloads fine so I think your problem is a local one on your computer. Please try on another computer or device and try another browser. You can also try to 'clear the cache' on Chrome and then try again.  
Best wishes, Jo (LearnEnglish Teens Team)

Hi Mughal! This is a phrase commonly used by a guest on a show or television programme. When the presenter introduces the guest or says 'Welcome', the guest can reply 'It's great to be here' (= I am happy to be here / I am happy to be here on this show). Does that help? :)

Hi Emy99. I've just tested it, and it seems to be working fine for me. Can you tell us which browser you are using (e.g. Chrome, Safari)?

If it doesn't play for you, here are some things you can try.

  • Download the mp3 using the link.
  • Try using a different web browser.
  • Try using a different computer/phone to check if it works there.

Let us know how it goes :)

I am a good sleeper.I can sleep everywhere.Even the place is changed,I can sleep as soon as I touch my pillow.That may be God’s best gift for me. I always sleep around 11 o’clock and get up at 6 AM.My sleeping time is only 7 hours.That May be the reason why I always doze off on my way to home from work.

Hi djoweken. I think that's a good idea. A steady routine can help you to plan your day and use the time well. Good luck :)

I usually sleep early for week days but I don´t want to wake up, and in weekend days I sleep late but I get up earlier, that's ironic.☺

Hi everyone, It's my first comment here :)
I don't sleep very well and that's why I am always tired in the morning. My main problem is sleeping with phone. I can't turn off phone and then go to bed. So my daily sleep-time is 6-7 hours and that's not enough for me.

Hi gvantsa,
Welcome to LearnEnglish Teens! Why can't you leave your phone in another room when you go to bed? It's not a good idea to sleep with your phone next to you. :) Sleep is really important so if your phone is stopping you getting enough sleep try not having it near you at bedtime. Good luck! 
Best wishes, Jo (LearnEnglish Teens Team)

actually i sleep very well, i work long hours that is why when i return home i am so exhausted and ready to sleep at once.
i usually sleep from 7 to 8 hours which is really enough to restore my energy.
