There was a lot of bad and depressing news on television and the radio and in newspapers and news feeds in 2018. However, the year 2019 will be the best ever. Reporters say it will be a particularly good year for English students. The year will provide many opportunities to improve listening, speaking, reading and writing skills. Everybody's New Year's resolution should be to use the many websites that focus on language learning. Studying for just 30 minutes a day will reap great rewards in developing vocabulary, fluency and comprehension skills.

There are many reasons why 2019 will be great. However, we must work together and treat each other with love and respect. This year will be the year of helping those who are less fortunate than ourselves. It will be a great year for hobbies. Reporters say the stars in the sky are aligning to send positive energy for our hobbies. Financially, we may need to tighten our belts so we can overcome any money problems. And finally, we will all be healthier. We will take better care of ourselves. Reporters urge us all to exercise more and eat healthier food.

Back to the the year 2019 lesson.
