Well, first of all... Happy New Year!

How time flies! A new year has just begun.

It’s curious how the passage of time is perceived according to age. Young people don't think much about it. Middle-aged people think about the things they still want to achieve and realize that they have less and less time. Older people, on the other hand, remember the old days.

Don't worry; I won't get too philosophical in this lesson.  :) I’ll go ahead and talk about New Year's resolutions.

As you know, when a new year comes, we all feel like doing many things. Also, we feel a bit guilty for having celebrated a little too much at Christmas.

Therefore in this episode, we will take a look at the most popular New Year's resolutions and practice new vocabulary.

And what’s a resolution?

A resolution is a firm decision to do something.  

My new’s year resolution is to use high proven techniques, based on the natural learning of a second language, to help my students to speak English automatically. 

Losing weight or going on a diet.

This resolution is a classic. After all the meals and alcoholic beverages, we decide to lose weight. Usually, this decision is made after a very generous meal. We are on a full stomach and solemnly decide that we are going to lose weight and that we are going on a diet.

Going to the gym

Another classic. It's funny how many people are paying their gym fee every month but never go. Sounds familiar?  Then now it's the perfect excuse to start exercising. A friend of mine told me in October that he wasn't going to the gym, but that he would certainly start going in January. :)
