¡Feliz Año Nuevo!
Here in Spain today is the day when people wake up to their New Years Resolutions. Behind them are the 12 grapes at midnight, the cava and the lucky red underwear and today the list is staring at them, invariably repeating the good intentions of last year:
- stop smoking
- go to the gym/lose weight/eat better
- learn English
I suspect that many of our readers have made a similar intention to really learn/improve Spanish in 2008, so this week I’m going to be giving some tips on how to do that.
1. SET YOURSELF A GOAL
Decide why you want to speak better Spanish. You need an objective to get you through those times when motivation is low. Many people want to be able to communicate better on holiday. Others want to move to a Spanish speaking country to have a better life. The important thing is to set the goal and think about the best way to achieve it.
Tomorrow we’ll look at another important resolution for your Spanish learning in 2008.
Hasta mañana 🙂
