    Go to sleep / Go sleeping

    Hello!

    Could you please tell me if the following sentences are gramatically correct:

    1 - He always goes to sleep very late.
    2 - He always goes sleeping very late.
    3 - She loves to go sleeping late.
    4 - She loves to go to sleep late.

    ?

    Thank you!

    Re: Go to sleep / Go sleeping

    #1 is fine. #2 and #3 are incorrect.

    #4 is grammatically acceptable, but we would normally say "She loves to go to bed late". We don't normally have control over when we actually go to sleep.
