Learn Russian online: Sleeping and dreaming

Sleeping and dreaming

Unlike English-speakers, Russians distinguish dreams you see at night and dreams of shiny future you invision when you're awake. In "Martin Luther King had a dream" and "I had a weird dream last night", the word "dream" really does mean different things, doesn't it? Learn how to talk about both kinds in this episode of Ruspod Shorts.
