Model Answer 1:
A couple of days ago, I had a dream about missing a train. It was something indicative to me. But I could not get the meaning clearly right that moment and later I realized that it was a sign of my negligence to my study. Later, I started focusing on my academic studies. This is a nice cue card for me and I will explain the matter in brief here.

It was a mixed feeling. In fact, for past couple of weeks, I had not been concentrating on my academic activities. I used to move around and bunk the college classes. Moreover, I got a couple of friends who were also similar to me and with their company, I failed to focus on my academic activities. So, when I saw the dream, I started feeling guilty. It was my subconscious mind that was telling me to improve my academic career.

Actually, the dream was a kind of symbolic instruction to me. I saw that I was missing a train as I was late to reach the station. I tried to catch the train, ran for a while but could not get into that for a few seconds. It could have been interpreted in several ways. But I discovered that it was my subconscious mind which was worried about me. Through the dream, it was warning me to come back on the track. If I do not follow the usual rules, I may experience some detrimental impacts.

I remember the dream very well as it was in my present condition. I was having some wonderful day with my mates and moved to different parts of the city. I made late to return home and followed the same routine in the next day. The dream warned me. And so I remember it.


Model Answer 2:
Thank you very much for this nice cue card topic. A couple of weeks ago, I had a dream and I cannot term is a good one. In fact, it was a very bad dream. It was about the death of a friend whom I admire the most. And I shared the dream with him too. He was also shocked hearing that. However, it was merely a dream- nothing more than that. So, both of us remained worry-free. But it was a surprise for me indeed.

When I woke up in the morning, I felt sad. I felt a sense of emptiness inside me deeply. And so, I woke up suddenly after having the dream. It was like a nightmare to me. I never experienced such a dream before and do not know why I saw it that day. When I shared it with my friend who was in my dream, he also felt the same but later we both laughed at the silly dream.

I had experienced some of the worst events of my life including the death of some senior relatives here in Germany. So, I had been thinking about them and death was an issue to focus on. I think this happened as I was too much engaged in the negative thoughts for the last few months and death surrounded my mind. Moreover, I was depressed too much for the loss of lives. As a result, my subconscious mind grabbed the matter and accordingly it appeared in my dream.

As I am inexperienced with such dreams, I can clearly remember it. And it had a great impact on my mind. In fact, I am unable to bear such a loss if such things happen in reality. I was caged with sadness and could not do well the whole day. For all the reasons, I can remember the dream very well.

Model Answer 1: People around the world wear different sorts of dresses and due to geographical location and seasonal changes, the attires vary. I always prefer wearing jeans clothes, especially jeans pant and shirt.
