Conversation questions

  • Do you remember your dreams? Why do some people remember their dreams well and others not?
  • Do you think dreams reveal important things about your personality or are they just random images? What for you is the significance and purpose of dreams?
  • What is your dream job? Is it simply a dream or could you achieve this? What practical steps could you take to achieve this dream?
  • “Adulthood is about the gradual extinction of your dreams as you adapt to the reality of life.” How much truth is there in this statement?
  • How many hours do you sleep? How many hours would you like to sleep ideally? What happens if you don’t get enough sleep?
  • Do you ever question the nature of reality or have the sense that nothing is real? Do you think it is useful or a waste of time to question reality? Why/why not?
  • The presenter of the audio talks obviously doesn’t like taking the bus. Do you share his dislike of busses? What is the best and worse form of public transport in your opinion?
  • Do you think your boss/teacher would accept the excuse that you weren’t sure he/she was real – if you failed to do an important excuse? What are the most common excuses people use in your job/school for not doing what they were supposed to?
  • Some experts say that deja-vu comes when something happens in reality which we dreamt. That’s why it seems like it’s happened before. When was the last time you had deja-vu, and what is your explanation?
  • What would you think if suddenly you woke up and you were ten years old, and everything that apparently happened in your teenage and adult life was a dream? What changes would you make based on the knowledge gained?


Well, I hope that was a sufficiently dreamy class of advanced English speaking and that you didn’t fall asleep. Bye.
