“I slept okay, but I stayed up late last night doing homework.”

When you stop sleeping in the morning, you wake up. Then, when you’re not asleep at night, you are staying up. Children usually have a fixed bedtime, but they often want to stay up and play or watch TV.

“Can we stay up?”

“Okay, you can stay up for one hour.”



朝目覚めるときは「wake up」、夜まだ寝ないときは「stay up」です。子どもには決まった寝る時間がありますが、遊ぶためやテレビを観るためにもっと晩くまで起きていたがることがあります。
