Next year I'm going to...

On the last week of the year a lot of people like to sit down and reflect on their lives, making plans for the next year. Do you ever make a list with your New Year's resolutions? Have you decided what you are - or aren't - going to do next year? According to different studies, people's lists tend to be remarkably similar in their general goals. Can you guess the top 10 list of New Year's resolutions in the US? Would the list be the same in other cultures?

If you want to have a go at making your plans for 2008, 43 things is a good place to start. After signing up you can share your ideas with the rest of the community and read other people's lists - there are some very interesting plans going on there!

And here's a quick activity to revise the use of 'going to' to talk about plans and intentions.
