This is the preparation material for an English conversation lesson about dreams.  Dreams are images, thoughts, sounds and voices, experienced when we sleep.  They may include people you know, people you've never met, places you've been, and places you've never even heard of.  Sometimes they're as simple as recalling events that happened earlier in the day.  At other times they can be strange and mysterious.  Some people believe that dreams give us special messages, others believe they reveal our fears and worries.
