Happy 2024 to everyone! Have you made any New Year’s resolutions?

Many people like to make a fresh start at the beginning of a new year. They decide to change their habits or improve themselves in some way. This is called a New Year’s resolution. Although in principle this sounds like a good idea, not surprisingly many New Year’s resolutions don’t last past January or February. But don’t let pessimistic statistics stop you from setting goals or having dreams. Maybe this year you will finally speak English fluently!
