Dreams can come true

Clases de inglés Madrid

Aaaah, dreams. Weird aren’t they? Gabrielle sang about them, Fleetwood Mac sang about them (Belter of a tune by the way!). Martin Luther King had a dream. A powerful and incredibly poignant dream at that too!

But what do they mean? To many of us they will be of significant meaning while to the rest of us they are far more trivial.

This week I had the pleasure of joining the ‘funky shirt-meister’ Lewis to talk about dreams as much as we possibly could (within fifteen minutes).

Well, that’s exactly what some of our students have been discussing this week in class, what do we dream about. 

Do you have crazy dreams? What about a dream car? or maybe even a dream holiday destination?

When we talk about having a dream (insert appropriate noun here…home, car, etc) we are expressing a strong want, or need. Something we desire.

What would you do, or what would you have done if you had your dream job?

It must come as no surprise then that we have several idioms to help us express our strong wants and desires.

Two of the most frequently used are:

 – Beyond your wildest dreams. Something is much bigger or better than you initially expected ( «She achieved success beyond her wildest dreams!»).

 – It’s a dream come true. Something you’ve wanted for a very long time has happened. (Working for Teachify is a dream come true».)

"Lets chat..."

Aprender Inglés

If you are reading this far, then you are now reading the introduction to a new section of the blog, ‘lets chat‘.

For those of you who have not yet been lucky enough to have a wonderful lesson with Teachify (where have you been!?) then you might not know that we like to wind down our classes with a good old chat. A nice natter about that weeks topic, always aiming to use the new vocabulary and grammar that we’ve learnt. 

So, now its your turn…to chat with us.

  • What was your dream as a child?
  • Do you think it’s necessary to be «ambitious«?
  • Do you think a persons dream change with time? 

Let us know your answers and thoughts, or even better… tell us in class!!

Who likes jokes?!

Trivial – of little value or importance

to natter – talk casually, especially about unimportant things.

ambitious – having or showing a strong desire and determination to succeed

Belter – something extremely good.

Poignant – creates a feeling of sadness or regret.

Funky – (in British slang) cool, great, good fun. Traditionally used for music.
