New Year’s Resolutions


In Spanish these are usually called “Buenos Propósitos del Año Nuevo” and consists of the same sorts of things as their English equivalent – stop smoking (dejar de fumar), lose weight (adelgazar) etc. etc.  Thinking about it, I don’t actually need to do either of those things, but I don’t think that’s the reason why I don’t bother with “Buenos Propósitos”.  Put it this way – have you ever got to the end of the year even remembering what your resolutions were, never mind having actually kept them!

However, here are some more resolutions in Spanish in case you need them:  ser más paciente con mis hijos/mi pareja;  conducir con más cuidado; hacer más ejercicio y comer mejor; aprender algo nuevo; and of course the most important, estudiar más español.   That one I’ll be checking up on!
