Thanks to Duolingo I am now dreaming in another language!

It wasn't much, I remember having a conversation with a guy from Mexico and asking him "¿por qué eres verde?" to which he replied "porque no me gusta azul".

Weird.

LOL! That is a very good sign! I remember being really happy when I started dreaming in English... and I would wake up and immediately say to myself: "OMG I said that wrong, the grammar was not good, etc" It's good because you are super aware of the language and even in my dreams I could tell when I was f-ing it up. hehe. Soon enough you'll be dreaming in Spanish all the time. :)

I just had a dream last night about languages. No one was directly speaking in any language, they just kept walking up to me and asking me to translate into Spanish and French. I kept waking up though (because I have a cold :( ) so it seemed like it lasted FOREVER and I was so frustrated with my self that I was making mistakes on the translations. (maybe this is one of those weird psychological dreams; I have been pretty frustrated with my French skills lately...) I've had a dream in ASL too.

That is so weird and awesome XD Congrats!! I had a couple weird dreams recently. One was a recurring nightmare in which I was the 12 year old male character, Dipper, from the show "Gravity Falls" and was trying to survive a zombie attack until midnight when the attack would end forever. I was able to wake myself up because I realized I'd had the exact same terrifying dream once, around two years ago. It was literally that scene when you sit bolt upright and say, "O.O. PHEW."

I recently broke a tooth and also had a nightmare that I thought was real. I was brushing my teeth and the rest of my tooth fell out into the sink. I was horrified in the dream, and left the tooth there and went to nervously tell my parents what had happened. The dream was oddly flawed, because I just walked out of the bathroom and appeared in the living room. :/

I can't wait to finally dream in Spanish, then in ASL if I ever get around to learning that!! That would be such a cool moment, to wake up and think, "Spanish has become so much a part of my life that I even dream in it..." of course, a late night Duolingo session might help a little. :P

I just had my first ever foreign language dream last night. Technically it was tri-lingual including my native English, Irish and Spanish.

The Irish was a brief phrase. For some reason I was working in an office where an Irish-speaking priest was visiting. As he left I said 'Slán go fóill' ('goodbye for now') and he replied 'Slán ('goodbye').

The Spanish one was longer, and a lot weirder. I was in a house with a load of my friends from university, but the house had no front wall and the room we were in just opened straight on to the street. One of my friends was on a laptop wanting to invite more people and I said:

'La dirección es [name of my street]... en todos. No tenemos ninguna pared del frente'.

The grammar is pretty poor, but not bad for Spanish while asleep, I feel!

Did you have a conversation with someone? That's what usually triggers me dreaming in another language. No amount of vocabulary or grammar study will do it, but a tough conversation does it almost every time.

I've had 2 dreams in Spanish.

The first one, I remember, I was speaking to a girl, I'm not sure where in the world I was but there were lots of people, and I tried to desperately to remember exactly what she said so I could translate it to see if it was real Spanish. But I forgot by the time I had the chance to try translate lol.

The second dream I was being chased with my Mexican friend through the rain forest, with what seemed to be mercenaries chasing us LOL! It was all in Spanish.

What a lovely story. But what surprised me is that I could almost understand the Spanish, when I've only done a little of the Spanish course, which went 'on hold' back in December, so I could concentrate on my Main course - Italian. Never got as far as colours on Spanish, but guessed them, due to their closeness to Italian. Oh how I'd love to dream in my target language like you :) Please post again to let us know if you have any more ISpanish Dreams, especially amusing ones :)

I´ve done that in Croatian too, I remember having a conversation with a lady in Croatian. I don't remember what about, but I do remember waking up and saying to myself "Did I really just dream in Croatian???" Also, I just recently had a dream in which I talked to my little brother in Esperanto, which was the weirdest thing ever since I just started learning EO about a week ago.

I remember my first dream in Korean, in the Peace Corps, I was jabbering away in the dream, and the other dream people understood me perfectly, but I was also aware that nothing I said in the dream was real Korean. It just sounded like it.

Then there was the time I got up from my Korean bed on the floor, got dressed to go to work, and then woke up. And then it happened again.

Dreams are weird.
