When you had an unpleasant dream in the night, you can say:

I had a nightmare
'I had' - Past tense. When speaking about dreams in the past tense you would say 'I had'
Nightmare is the word used for a bad dream.

You can also say:
I had a bad dream
A bad dream is another way of saying nightmare.

I had a scary dream
A scary dream is another way of saying nightmare.

I hope that helps!
夜に不快な夢を見た時、こう言うように言うことができます。

I had a nightmare

'I had' 過去形。過去に見た夢を話すときは 'I had'を使います。
Nightmare は悪夢という意味です。

このようにいうこともできます。
I had a bad dream
A bad dream と nightmareは同義です。

I had a scary dream
A scary dream と nightmareは同義です。

I hope that helps!

I had a nightmare.
怖い夢を見た。

怖い夢は dream ではなく、nightmare と言います。
また夢は日本語では「見る」ものですが、英語では "had a dream/nightmare" と言います。

Remember we cannot say "I saw a scary dream" we say "I had a scary dream."
"I had a nightmare." is correct. Since it something that has happened already we use the past tense.
"I saw a scary dream"とは言いません "I had a scary dream."と言う事を覚えておきましょう。

"I had a nightmare."も正しい表現です。
すでに過去に起こった事なので、過去形を使いましょう。

  • I woke up from a very scary dream

The noun 'nightmare' means 'a frightening or unpleasant dream'. It is very usual for someone to wake up from an unpleasant dream. It is quite strange that people get scared even in their sleep.
You may say: I had a nightmare that woke me up.
You may also say: I had a frightening dream that woke me up.
The adjective 'frightening' in this case is derived from the verb to 'frighten', which means 'to make afraid or fearful; throw into a fright; terrify; scare'.
So, you may say: I had a frightening dream that woke me up.

In the last sentence, you have started with 'I woke up from' and proceeded to say 'a very scary dream'. The adjective 'scary' in this context means 'frightening; causing fear'.
So you may say: I woke up from a very scary dream.

名詞'nightmare'は 'a frightening or unpleasant dream'(恐ろしい、喜ばしくない夢)を意味します。
人にとって、喜ばしくない夢で眼が覚めるのは普通のことです。
人々が寝ているのに怖がるのはとても不思議です。

例:
I had a nightmare that woke me up.
ー悪夢を見て、眼が覚めた。

他の例:
I had a frightening dream that woke me up.
ー恐ろしい夢を見て、眼が覚めた。

形容詞'frightening'はこの場合 'frighten'に由来していて、それは'to make afraid or fearful; throw into a fright; terrify; scare'(怖がらせる、恐ろしい)という意味を表します。

例:
I had a frightening dream that woke me up.
ー恐ろしい夢を見て眼が覚めた。

最後の文で、'I woke up from'という表現から始めて、'a very scary dream'と進めています。
形容詞'scary' はこの文脈では’frightening; causing fear'(こわがらせるもの)を意味します。

例:
I woke up from a very scary dream.
ー恐ろしい夢で眼が覚めた。

A bad dream is usually called a nightmare, but it is acceptable to call it a bad/scary dream.
For example, you can say:
-Last night, I woke up crying because I had a bad dream
-I hate nightmares because I cannot go back to sleep after having one.
-The scary dream I had the other night freaked me out so much that I did not want to sleep the next day.
悪い夢はnightmareと言います。しかし、bad dream(悪い夢)もしくはscarydream(怖い夢)とも言うことができます。例えば以下のように言うことができます。
-Last night, I woke up crying because I had a bad dream
昨晩悪い夢を見て、起きたら泣いていました。

-I hate nightmares because I cannot go back to sleep after having one.
怖い夢を見ると、その後眠ることができないので、怖い夢は嫌いです。

-The scary dream I had the other night freaked me out so much that I did not want to sleep the next day.
先日見た怖い夢がとても怖くて次の日眠りにつきたくありませんでした。

A terrible nightmare and a very bad dream
can be used interchangeably. They both mean
that the person was very afraid and anxious while
in this sleep state and was very happy upon waking
to discover that it was all just a dream.
悪夢のことをA terrible nightmareやa very bad dreamと言います。

これらは、どちらも同じように使うことができます。どちらも悪夢に怖い思いをしたり、不安に感じていたけれど、起きたらただの夢だったことにほっとすることを表します。

"I had a nightmare" means that the person had a very bad and scary dream. It made them feel fearful, frightened to go back to sleep, afraid of the darkness at night.
"I had a nightmare" とは、悪夢や怖い夢を見たという意味です。もう一度眠るのが怖かったり、暗闇が怖かったりするかもしれません。

A 'nightmare' or a 'night terror' is another word to describe a bad or scary dream.

We can describe being woken up by this scary dream by saying we 'woke up in a cold sweat'. This is an idiom to describe a feeling of fear that causes us to awaken from our sleep.
「悪夢」「怖い夢」は 'nightmare' や 'night terror' でも表すことができます。
「怖い夢で目が覚める」は 'woke up in a cold sweat'(冷や汗をかいて目覚める)と表すことができます。これは、恐怖で目が覚めることを表すイディオムです。
