[Easy English Blog] Morning person or night owl?


In English, we call someone who gets up early and functions better in the early morning “a morning person“.

We call someone who stays up late and functions better at night “a night owl.”


I have always been a morning person. I like to get up early and start work before everyone else.

I used to get up at 5:00 am and go running before work.

Recently though, I have been busy, and I have been tired and going to bed late.

So now, I usually get up at around 6:30 or 7:00. I have some coffee and have something to eat, and then I start work at around 7:30. It is still early.

One of my friends is not a morning person. He is a night owl. He prefers to work at night, so he works in a bar. Some nights, he only finishes work at 4:00am. But he likes that lifestyle. I don’t think I could do it. I think I would be very tired!

How about you? Are you “a morning person“? Or are you “a night owl“?
