English Grammar Pattern 69
(1) "Have you ever" + (2) Long Verb

Model Sentence
(1) Have you ever (2) dreamed you were flying in a space ship?

English Grammar Pattern 69 is good for learning more about your conversation partner's experiences and memories. Reminder: You can use "ever" in a question, because anything is possible. However, in answers, do NOT use "ever". Simply answer "I have..." or "I haven't...". In a negative situation, you can emphasize your answer by saying "I've never..." plus the long verb.
