I meant to discuss this earlier but it slipped my mind.

Anyway the setting in the dream was coincidentally located in France and guess who was one of the starring characters?

Marie Antoinette

However, NO decapitations were present in this dream. Oddly enough, there was food falling from the sky including cake that she let us eat!

I was surrounded by a few other people eating the food and I was saying the foods in French.

I'm telling Duolingo is very influential. Even in RAM sleep. Duolingo crosses dimensions and it reached a dimension I though wasn't penetrable.

Thanks Duolingo for keeping me on my feet even in my dreams!

That would be REM sleep. One of my mother's friends had been a missionary in Peru and said she knew she was comfortable with Spanish when she started dreaming in it. I have dreamed video games before that i had been playing before bed. There was one night where i practiced my German right before bed and certain words were repeating in my dreams all night long. But i can't dream in German or Spanish yet.

RAM sleep is a very witty, but possibly inadvertent joke by the writer.

(RAM is basically short term computer memory)

It was probably only me who chuckled at that, because duolingo is on the computer or something. :)

So not too witty, but I still found it funny.

I had a dream where everything was in Hungarian once, and ended up waking my friend up by shouting at someone in Hungarian in my dream and shouting out in my sleep at the same time. Oops.

I would have had a heart attack if I was your friend! I'm a light sleeper so even the quietest mouse could wake me which is I usually have some sound noise cancellation in the background to cancel out outside noise. Like my air conditioner makes this buzzing sound that cancels out the hallway noise in my house

Once, I actually had a dream in which a man was speaking in Italian. I can't recall what exactly he said, but it was definitely real Italian and I could understand it. Though that's because I was technically the one generating the words. Dreams are weird.

Dreams are weird but they are also indicators for reality. They tell you what should be resolved as far as personal issues are concerned or they channel your desires.

I think your dream spoke on your desire to learn Italian. If you weren't as focused on learning it, that Italian man would have not appeared in your dream. So essentially, your dream is saying your desire/dedication to learn Italian and its paying off

Fascinating. :) I often literally practice Italian while dreaming, i often dream about several situations (everyday situations and weird ones too) where i have to spontaneously speak and i often get wondering about it while dreaming... Most of the time, i relive the moments of my unforgettable Italian holiday that i had this summer... It is a tremendous feeling but there is nothing more horrible than waking up from such a dream... :(

Yikes! Before going to bed think "happy" thoughts or watch/do something you like. After I watch horror movies by myself I watch a happy cartoon so I don't have nightmares Lmao

Food falling from the sky...that sounds like a pretty good dream... :)

My parents are both bilingual, and they say that once you start dreaming in another language, you're pretty much at fluency. So high-five!

OMG! That's cool. Even though I have a long way to go! THey were just saying the foods in French. That's pretty much it even though I know more than that. I'd say I'm more fluent in French written language than verbal

When you can dream in a foreign language or hold a conversation on the telephone (particularly if you're drunk), I think you've passed a critical point in your learning of that language. Alas, I've yet to do either of the above in Spanish.

Not so long time ago, I dreamed about some lady talking German. I don't remember what exactly she said, but I know her last question: "Kannst du Deutsch sprechen?" I don't know why, but I wasn't able to put out one word from myself. In normal life I would answer something like: "Ein bischen..." But I often have dreams in which I should do something and I just cannot. For example sitting in the car which is driving down the hill and I can't even touch the steering wheel. Dreams are weird ;).

So, in that case... should I better grasp my opportunity to speak, when I meet somebody from Germany? Or be careful and do not drive down the hills, when I'll some day have a car? - OK, just a joke I understood what you were trying to say ;). But seriously- should I better never drive a car? :)

I've had a similar experience! Ever since I was little I have always had a fascination with languages. I loved being able to communicate my ideas and knowledge in every way possible. My first language is English although I took two years of Spanish in high school and I practice it almost everyday, my girlfriend speaks Spanish and so does her entire family. Anyways, I always have dreams in Spanish. In my dreams I speak it fluently but in real life I don't. My dreams can range from anything. If I can say it in English I can say it in Spanish. I think it's actually quite interesting :)

I always that someone putting in effort to become bilingual was an attractive quality which is why I myself have tried to learn Spanish and French to view myself a little more attractive (not in a conceited way) But moreover intellectually.

I believe dreams are reality indicators for what should be dealt with or things that you've been stressed, excited, or focused on in reality. So basically my French dreams are telling me I've really been in touch with learning this language which is a good sign to me at least.

What's crazy is I'm gradually saying things in French related to my everyday life. Just the other day my grandmother cooked Fish and beans for my sister and grandfather and I said "Je mange du poisson et des haricots" LoL

I was so proud of myself

I have dreams in French regularly, but never the whole dream. I have situations when I have to speak French, such as going to a French restaurant run by French people, which funnily enough is situated in the middle of England! I think this could be a preparation, as I'm going to France with my school soon, and I'm so excited to have a conversation with someone in French!
