Translation and Answer

The house I saw in the dream

There is a picture of a full blue moon on the wall in my room. I often look at it before going to bed.

One night, I dreamed. I was in a spacious room. And I can see the Earth from the window. I thought “this must be the house on the moon”. I was so happy. However, when looking closely, there is nothing hung on the wall. There aren’t any tables or chairs either. And there is nothing decorated in that house. Then I shouted, “I hate a house like this.”

Then, I woke up. In my room, there are bed and table. There is also a calendar hung on the wall. There are lots of my favorite books neatly arranged on the bookshelf. I think this house is better than the house I saw in the dream.


1. There is a picture of the earth on the wall of this person’s room(✖)

2. There is nothing in the room on the moon(〇)

3.  This person want to live in the house on the moon.(✖)
