How you have slept today in 15 sentences

If you think about it, you talk about how you have slept every day. Probably, too, about dreams you’ve had. Describing how you spent the night is a topic of frequent conversation in the family, with friends and even with fellow students or work. To express yourself in Spanish, you should choose, generally, present perfect: I have slept (he dormido), I have not slept (no he dormindo); I have dreamed (he soñado), I have not dreamed (no he soñado) or; I have had (he tenido), I have spent (he pasado) … In this post you will find 15 easy sentences built with this verb tense.


Listen to the audio:



Hoy no he pegado ojo. (I haven’t got a wink of sleep all night.)

Hoy he dormido fatal. (I have slept poorly.)

¡Vaya nochecita he pasado! (I have slept poorly!)

He pasado la noche con los ojos como platos. (I haven’t slept all night.)

He pasado la noche dando vueltas sin parar (en la cama). (I’ve spent all night going round and round in the bed.)

No he conciliado el sueño hasta las tres de la madrugada. (I haven’t fallen asleep until three in the morning.)

Me ha costado dormir por culpa de tus ronquidos. (I have had problems to sleep by your snoring noises.)

Me he pasado toda  la noche en vela. (I have spent a sleepless night.)

He estado toda la noche en un duermevela. (I tossed and turned all night.)

Me he despertado por culpa de una pesadilla. (I have woken up because of a nightmare.)

He tenido un sueño maravilloso. (I have had a wonderful dream.)

He soñado que me tocaba la lotería. (I have dreamt that I won the lottery.)

He dormido fenomenal. (I have slept very good.)

He descansado como nunca. (I have rested as never before.)

He tenido en sueños una idea brillante. (I have a brilliant idea in dreams.)

Remind that we use present perfect to express past actions that last in some way. It is made with the verb ‘haber’, as auxiliary verb, and the participle of the verb that express action done.

Asking how you have spent night or have slept is one of the education and co-habitation rules. In that case, we use generally present perfect of the indicative mood:

¡Buenos días! ¿Qué tal has dormido hoy? (Good morning! How have you slept today?)

He dormido muy bien, gracias, ¿y tú? (I have slept very well, thanks, and you?)
