Do you ever have dreams in your target language?
I'm working almost exclusively with input right now, but this week I had a dream where I spoke Spanish for a bit with someone. It was interesting to me because my "dream self" was not anxious at all about speaking, and it was all grammatically correct. It makes me wonder about which parts of our brains are active in dreams and whether our "dream speech" is more closely related to what we say/think when we're awake or based more on what we hear!
Wish I had a dreams on foreign languages.
During 3 months of 1-2 hours of study a day (after some on-and-off studying before that), I have had 2 or 3 dreams where I've spoken my target language. I have a feeling that with continued consistency it will happen more and more! I'm sure you will have one soon enough!
This happened every now and then to me at a time when my mind was completely occupied by my target language. Since then I think it has happened only once. So at least for me it seems to be connected to level of immersion. Back then I was only studied for a few months so my level was pretty low.
Funnily enough, I felt completely fluent in my dreams. I wonder how much of that was a failure to notice mistakes and how much the lack of insecurity and self doubt actually helped.
I have dreamed in Spanish a couple of times, but not as often as I would have hoped by now.
In English, very often.
In Spanish, I think only once.
I translated your sentence for my wife, and she said that if I ever get to that point then I have to stop learning German.
