What Are Your Goals For 2018

At the beginning of January 2017, I made a New Years resolution to learn Spanish. I missed my mark of becoming fluent in a year. Learning a new language is more difficult than I originally thought. However, Duolingo says I am 48% fluent. The quest for fluency continues as a goal for 2018.  In today's world learning a second language or more is beneficial to negotiating business goals, and life in general.  For seniors, there is evidence learning a second language helps boost memory.  I use the free on-line language learning tool, Duolingo.  I can't say enough for it.  It makes learning languages more like a game than a task.  It's available at: https://www.duolingo.com

 

What are your goals for 2018?
