I'm afraid I have no idea when a question like this would be asked. Can someone contextualize this for me?

Not sure if this is right, but I was thinking it's something like "do your parents let you sleep in late?"

I picture a scenario where I have this one friend that always gets up early and I asked sarcastically "Can you get up late ?"

Perhaps when you have toddlers, and you'd really like them to sleep in?

I have asked my 3 year old this question a lot when he still wants to get up at 6:30am on a weekend morning.

You shouldn't...we can use our time to learn language instead! ;)

'Could' should be acceptable

    The sentence makes more sense like this "Are you able to get up late" which means - in the place where you are staying - do they let you get up late. It was not accepted by DL, though it should be. I have reported it.

    This is a real question. And the answer? No not once you have kids

    Шутка наоборот

    the question could be in an ironic sense, I think. But I don't know if Russians speak that way.

    This is a strange sentence


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Valiaxmetova

    Вставать поздно= 'sleep in'?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/BobHorick

    A very unnatural sentence.

    Why? I imagine this conversation:

    "I work flexitime."

    "That's nice. Can you get up late?"


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/SharonGBro

    I vould see a scenario ehere someone needs to work late at night, and a concerned friend asks "Can you get up late?" ( to make up for lost sleep)
