Yes. Once I dreamed in english. To explain exactly the situation, firstly I guess this happened because I had a hard day in my job. At that day there were some foreigners here at a conference Brazil x Canadá and when I got home I just fell asleep and the dream has started.
I didn't know almost nothing about the English Language, I had just started to take my english classes and get a job where I could improve my English skills. So, throughout the day I was listening a lot of employees talking in english and in spite of I wasn't be able to get everything they were talking to each other. I started to listen and understand everything as a miracle, thereafter I got to the conference I started to discuss about the project we've done for the growing to the company following the budget and the tremendous forecast. (I guess Flávia's used to do that at hers conferences.)
Well, after my presentation/performance as the Financial Director was everything's going fine the company's president enjoyed the idea about the anual budget and that's it!
And highlighting my presentation has been done in English.
I think I understand what you are saying and would like to make it a little clearer through a rewrite.
"Yes. Once I dreamed in english. To exactly explain the situation I need to state that I had a very hard day at my job, because that day some Canadians were here for a conference with the Brazilians and I was so tired when I got home that I almost immediately fell asleep and started to dream.
In my dream, I knew almost nothing about the English language as I had just started English classes and gotten a job where I could improve my English skills. Then throughout the day as I listened to the employees talking in English I started to understand some of what they were saying, and as the day went on I, almost miraculously, began to understand everything being said. Soon thereafter I discussed the budget and a realistic but optimistic forecast for a project that we had designed to allow the company to grow at an accelerated rate.
As the company's Chief Financial Officer, I presented the the budeget and expansion plan in English, which delighted and impressed the company's President who then approved the budget and expansion plans as I had presented them.
If you do not understand the "whys and wherefores" of the above please let me know.
For the curious look up the following to augment your vocabulary.
