Was last year a good year for you? Did you keep all your promises or "New years Resolutions"? If you answered no, you are not alone. Most people don't keep their resolutions.
BUT...let's make English your goal for this year...and lets try to keep it going for more than a month!! I'm here to give you the help that you need.
So what is your goal? You could say, "I will be bilingual by the end of the year" but is that realistic?
Why not take little bites of the "English Pie"? Make small changes to help yourself learn English slowly but consistantly.
