Not sure if "consider" is quite right, you are not mulling over the white Christmas and weighing up its pros and cons. I would suggest replacing {qel} with {jal}.

Unfortunately, we don't teach that word.

I thought I had come across {jal} in the course somewhere, but might have confused it with one of the others, sorry about that. Though, you do have {legh}, which might work better than {qel}.

Oops, you're right -- we do have jal after all.

It's also worth noting that jal can take an object, being that which is dreamt about :)

This sentence was intended to illustrate qel, though, so I'll leave it for now.
