I’ve been dreaming in German for quite a while now but all those dreams have been rehashing the grammar rules I’ve learnt that day or conjugating verbs. Basically my subconscious trying to make sense of everything I’m learning and consolidating it. However, last night I had my very first dream in German where both I and the other person in the dream were speaking in German. I don’t remember an awful lot about the dream but I was walking up some stairs chatting to the person next to me and what I remember is that even in my dream I didn’t understand every single word that they were saying, but I understood enough to be able to make some kind of reply. It was interesting to see my dream life resembled reality, although it would have been much more cooler if I had been completely fluent in German in my dream world.
I’ve been told that when you start dreaming in another language is when you finally make some kind of breakthrough. I hope this is correct. For those of you who are conversational/fluent in another language, at what point did you start dreaming in that language? And do you think that it had any relation to what stage of learning that language you were up to?
