Am I sleepy or do I have a dream?

hace 4 años
Un sueño in Spanish means a dream and, that's why many of my students are quite surprised when I tell them that...

Tener sueño means I'm sleepy or I want to sleep.

In Spanish, we use the verb Tener (to have) to express ideas such as:

Tengo hambre - I'm hungry
Tengo sed - I'm thirsty
Tengo suerte - I'm lucky

I hope you find this helpful!

Remember, when you use to be in Spanish you will probably have to choose between ser, estar, tener and haber.
