Test 3 — Listening
Interviewer: I've asked some people to talk about dreaming. Here’s what they said.
Speaker 1: (man) (D)
The night before I went to school for the first time, I had dreamt that my teacher was going to be that big, green ugly monster! Naturally, the next day I was kicking and screaming and refusing to go to school. When my mother finally managed to drag me there and I met my teacher, I felt so relieved! She looked like an angel!
Speaker 2: (woman) (B)
I think that what we see in our sleep telte us something important about us and that nightmares try to wam us of something bad. That’s why I always keep a dream dictionary by my bed, and I often look at it whenever I have had a particularly strange dream.
Speaker 3: (woman) (E)
I was very upset when I lost my favourite pen that my granddad had given me. We searched the whole house but we found nothing. I went to bed worrying and dreamt that while I was walking in the garden, I saw a shiny object under the rose bush. When I woke up the next morning, I went to that bush and my pen was there, exactly like in my dream!
Speaker 4: (young boy) (C)
I keep dreaming about the same thing most nights. In my dream,
I am always waiting a long time for buses and trains. Therefore,
I am always late getting to school. When I get there, my teacher screams and shouts at me. I always wake up tired but relieved that it isn’t true.
Speaker 5: (young boy) (A)
Last night, I went to bed after reading a horror book on mysterious monsters around the world. Later I dreamt about fighting and kicking a huge ugly sea monster that was trying to eat me! I woke up screaming and fell off my bed as I was trying to escape from the terrifying creature!
