Despite all the bad and often depressing news that filled our televisions, newspapers, radios and news feeds in 2018, there are reports that the year 2019 will be the best ever. Breaking News English reporters say it will be a particularly good year for students of English. The reporters say the year will provide ample opportunities to refine and develop your listening, speaking, reading and writing skills. The New Year's resolution of all learners of English and other languages should be to exploit the myriad of websites dedicated to language learning. Dedicating just 30 minutes a day will reap great rewards in developing vocabulary, fluency and comprehension skills.

There are other reasons why 2019 will prove to be the best year ever. However, we all need to pull together and treat each other with love and respect. This year will be the year of good deeds and of helping those who are less fortunate than ourselves. It will also be a fantastic year for hobbies. Reporters say the stars in the sky are aligning to send positive vibes so that we all excel in our hobbies - both existing and new. Financially, we all need to tighten our belts so we can weather whatever monetary storms the year might throw up. And finally, we will all be more health conscious and take better care of ourselves. Reporters urge us all to exercise more and eat more nutritious food.
