    Disclaimer: I'm not a teacher.

    Passive forms of "I speak to you" include "You are spoken to (by me)" and "You get spoken to (by me)".

    Passives of "I dream of travelling abroad" include "Travelling abroad is dreamt/dreamed of (by me)" and "Travelling abroad gets dreamt/dreamed of (by me)".

    Passive voice is a useful device for emphasizing the object of a verb and de-emphasizing the subject. Be careful how you use it, though. The above passives sound awful and I'd recommend not using them.
