Everyone asks me “Do you dream in Spanish?” Yes, I do! Especially when I’m speaking it more. The first time you dream in another language, you feel so proud!
It’s like your brain is working overtime and has fully started to understand how to think and process a different way. I’ve had full on conversations and planned speeches while dreaming in Spanish! I wake up feeling marvelous, fully rested but like I was doing slight brain exercises overnight.
Whether it’s true or not, I wake up feeling smarter. In a lot of ways it is true, because this is one of the first signs that your brain is assimilating the language and actually getting it.
I had a recent client tell me she was having dreams of our Spanish lessons together. It was so exciting to hear. She was partially thinking- “Brittany, get out of my head!” but she was also so pumped that her brain was finally understanding it to that degree!
It won’t be long until you reach that milestone too and you will understand exactly how cool it is to dream in another language!

This "dreamy" photo was taken in the salt flats in northern Chile outside of San Pedro de Atacama. I took this photo and I'm so proud of it, that I sent it to National Geographic for a contest... Sadly it didn't win, but I still think it's phenomenal!
Brittany is a bilingual Spanish teacher who has lived in Spain and Argentina. Through this blog, she hopes to relate her travels, insights, and Spanish speaking journey!
