A new year tends to remind me of Resolutions with a capital ‘R’. Many people tend to set some sort of goals for themselves. Sometimes, we lose sight of what they are as the year rolls on. Nonetheless, setting goals guide us to working towards something that is important or meaningful to us. My resolution? It is to learn Korean. I’m trying very hard to find a Korean language teacher…
Here’s something from The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole 13 3/4:
Chapter One Thursday January 1st Bank Holiday in England Ireland, Scotland and Wales These are my New Year’s resolutions: I will help the blind across the land. I will hang my trousers up. I will put the sleeves back on my records. I will stop squeezing my spots. I will be kind to the dog. I will help the poor and ignorant. Just my luck, I’ve got a spot on my chin for the first day of the New Year!
Have you had a chance to read Adrian Mole? The author, Sue Townsend, has created a lovable boy who is just quite unfortunate in so many ways. If you do get a chance, the school library has a copy, if I’m not mistaken. Enjoy reading. It works wonders for your language, idea generation and sentence formation.
ACTIVITY QUESTIONS: How do you celebrate New Year in Korea? What are some of your resolutions?
