December has arrived and it’s one of the most wonderful times of the year, with Christmas just around the corner. It’s time to reflect on what we have achieved this year and of course to think about what resolutions we have for the New Year, on both a personal and professional level.
The most typical resolutions that people make are to give up smoking, to do more sport, to read more books, to spend more time with friends, to face up to our problems or fears, to save money or enjoy life more… But what about learning languages? This is amongst the most important New Year’s Resolutions nowadays, whether it is to start from scratch or to pick up from where you left off.
At III Language Schools we propose that you set ambitious, but attainable goals, and most importantly of all, tell yourself that you can do everything that you put your mind to. It’s all in the mind!
Why would learning English or another language be a good New Year’s Resolution?
As I said at the beginning of this post, this type of objective is not only for the good of your career, but for you as a person. By learning languages we can meet new people, travel anywhere in the world, enrich ourselves, find a new hobby that we can feel really interested in, develop our minds, etc. It can benefit so many aspects of our lives.
Here are some of our tips to help you to fulfil your resolution of learning or improving a language:
- Find a friend or relative who has the same goal as you of learning a language, so that you can go to class together and it will be easier.
- Choose a course that suits your needs, for example if you don’t have a lot of time sign up to a course with fewer hours a week so that you don’t miss class.
- Combine the course with a series or a book that you like, in the language that you are studying.
- If you can, get back in touch with a friend from another country who you used to practice the language with in another moment in your life.
This is just some of the advice that we can offer you so that you meet all of your language learning goals and resolutions for 2019, but don’t forget that no one knows you better than you do and you have to believe in yourself!
As the year draws to a close we would like to congratulate all those who have learnt a language in 2018, to those who have taken up their studies again, and to those who have passed official exams to prove their language level. You put your mind to it and you did it! Congratulations!
But what about those who will do the same in 2019? We believe that you and your family will be the ones who will reap the rewards next year and we will help you to do it in III Language Schools.
Happy Christmas and may all your dreams come true in 2019!
