    A patient is asking a doctor about sleep. Here is their conversation.

    A patient is asking a doctor about sleep. Here is their conversation.


    Patient: How long do we need to sleep for every day? Do we need to sleep for about eight hours every day?

    Doctor: It depends on the kind of sleep you get. If you get a "sound sleep" or "deep sleep" than six hours can also be enough.

    Patient: How long should we sleep for if we are sleeping in the noon rather than night?

    Doctor: It doesn't matter how long you sleep for in the day time. You still feel dizzy at night.

    Please check my sentences.

    Patient: How long should we sleep for if we are sleeping in the afternoon rather than at night?

    Doctor: It doesn't matter how long you sleep for in during the day time. You still feel dizzy sleepy at night (How could this be true?).

    It is true I have experienced it. It just doesn't matter how long you sleep in the afternoon you never feel refreshed.

    In American English we would say:

    eight hours a day

    See above.
