What are you going to do different in 2015?  A New Year’s resolution is your intention to change something about yourself from the previous year.  It’s not always easy to stick to changes, and often people don’t, but the point is to recognize that the new year is an opportunity to strengthen your resolve to be a better person than you already are.

To declare your intentions, it’s helpful to have the right words.  Here are five examples of how to talk about your resolutions:

  • I would like…  “I would like to travel to India.”
  • I hope to…  “I hope to stop biting my nails.”
  • I want to…  “I want to move into a new apartment.”
  • I’m going to…  “I’m going to start working out more.”
  • I will…  “I will speak more English.”


What are some typical New Year’s resolutions in your country?
