A New Year is here and it is a time to make New Year's Resolutions and set some goals for yourself, or is it? Is this a truly effective way to get things done? Is it even necessary? In this episode, I discuss the pros and cons of setting goals. I discuss how goals can help motivate you to get a desired result and discuss Matt Stone's book "Goals Suck: Why the Obsessions with Goal-Setting is a Flawed Approach to Productivity and Life in General". Ultimately, you have to decide for yourself whether or not you will be setting goals for the new year. I hope you enjoy the podcast and find it useful. The Lesson Guide is available at www.englishfluencynow.com.

Everybody is always trying to figure out what the best way to do something is, and learning a language is no exception. In this episode, I review 10 suggestions that were given by mulitlingual experts in a recent discussion on language learning, reported on in The Guardian. You will hear what these experienced language learners and teachers have to say about language learning, in general, and what I have to add to their suggestions, especially for ESL students. As you know, I believe in comprehensible input and a lot of listening and reading in order to improve your English skills. I hope you enjoy the podcast and find it useful. The Lesson Guide is available at www.englishfluencynow.com.
