We have dreams in our life.

Can we also say 'We have hopes in our life'?

Could I ask native English teachers to help me? Thank you very much.

Yes, you can, but this could lead into deep discussion.:shock:

Hopes and dreams are not precisely synonymous.

I dream of living in a perfect world AND I hope to live in a perfect world have different connotations.

"dream of" = consider possible [cf Martin Luther King: I have a dream...]

"hope for something" = want something to happen
