What are your goals this school year? Have you set any yet? Well, it's about time. When we start New Year, we make New Year's resolutions. So why not make resolutions for the new school year?
I know that New Year's resolutions are usually unsuccessful. That is because most of us set unrealistic goals, don't keep track of the progress or simply forget about them. But don't be discouraged. I'll give you some tips how to stick to your goals this year.

1) Let's start with a list. You can download and print the list I've drawn:

2) People usually set too much goals, so I suggest you should apply KISS principle: Keep it short and simple. You don't have to write a bucket list. Choose, let's say, three goals. Then it would be easier to achieve all of them.

3) Make your goals SMART:
S - specific
Target a specific area for improvement, e.g. fluency, pronunciation.
M - measurable
Define an indicator of progress. How will you know when your goal is accomplished?
A - achievable
Make sure your goal is possible to achieve, given available resources. If you want to speak English fluently in a month, it's rather unrealistic.
R - relevant
Is reaching your goal relevant to you? Why do you want to reach this goal?
T - time-bound
Specify when you want to achieve your goals. It's better to do things step by step, so you can define small steps that will lead you to success and follow them. Remember to set deadlines for each step.

What do you think? Do you make new school year's resolutions? Do you keep them? Please, share your thoughts in the comments.
Good luck!
