The New Year is always a reminder to get, "out with the old and in with the new." We take the time to try and get rid of old bad habits and start new great ones!
This blog carnival has links to blog posts from different English Language Teachers who write about their plans for the New Year. Many of them have stuck to a strictly educational perspective, whereas others have included their personal goals. Take a moment and check out these great blogs! Get inspired by their resolutions, or help them out by giving them tips. Most importantly, have a great 2015!

New Year, New Potential
What: After four months of teaching, I no longer fear I’m on the verge of getting fired, and I’ve found my own groove, but there’s always room for improvement. This year, I plan to get more creative, ensuring I’m teaching effectively, and focus on what really matters- my students!

New Year Travel Resolution
What: Dean's blog delves into the rewards that can come from learning another language. He focuses on the challenges that had so far, as well as the hopes had for the future. Mandarin is not an easy language to learn. But the best rewards come from those that demand the hardest work.
