Welcome Back, Everybody!
Happy 2013! I hope you have all enjoyed the holidays with friends and family and may 2013 be the best year yet!
This week, we recapped the holidays and in honor of being back to school, discussed routines and habits, both good and bad. And of course, we talked about how to make studying English a habit!
So, on to the homework. What habit would you like to change in 2013? This week for reading, start with this infographic about How to Change a Habit. Or try reading about the Daily Routines of Famous Creative People.
For listening, try this activity about Bad Habits or from Listen a Minute (mp3, tapescript, quiz). For more advanced learners who would like to try something in "original version" story from NPR about the power of habits (mp3, transcript)
For writing, you could write a "Day in the Life" composition about your routines and your good and bad habits. Or make a plan about how you are going to make studying English a habit in 2013!
We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit. -- Aristotle
