Happy New Year! (Et Une Annonce Très Spéciale)

Happy New Year

Happy, happy 2016!

Last week, I hope you had a bit of (un peu de) free time to catch up on (rattraper) the best SBFG TV episodes of last year (or at least just relaxed and enjoyed the festive holiday time).

Ive personally also been recharging my batteries at home in the USA: jogging along the beach, spending time with my family, seeing the new Star Wars film, and visiting Houston, Texas for the first time (a great city that I highly recommend visiting)! Its been a great break (une super pause).

Of course I love my work and I love bringing you new episodes each week, but we both know that a little down time (du temps de repos) makes us happier, healthier, and more productive.

But even during down time, I love sharing things with you and helping you learn about American culture. If you want personal insights and some travel photos from the USA, follow my Facebook page or Instagram account. Im sharing almost-daily reports,direct from the field!

In this weeks New Years episode, youll also find out (découvrir) the rulesfor wishing Happy New Year to your American colleagues. Its VERY different from what you do in France.

The new year is the perfect time to set your goals (définir vos objectifs) and decide that 2016 will be the year you take action to boost your English and boost your career.

If youre like me, youre excited about the new projects, the things that youre going to accomplish, and the plan youre going to put in place (mettre en place) to make your goals happen (pour accomplir vos objectifs) this year. I am pumped (Je suis surexcitée) because Ive got some big projects to share with you this year.

Youll discover the first big project in todays video, so be sure to watch it for the big announcement.

Plus, youll find out how you can get on my VIP list for some free full English lessons with me.

Its a great way to start the new year right by doing something right now to help you meet your goals in English.

Speaking of the new year, this article from CNN.com will help you learn more about the practice of wishing Happy New Yearto your American colleagues.

Youll see, its VERY different from the attitude in France!

And after youve watched the video, tell us in the comments below:

What are your goals for 2016?

Not resolutions, but goals (because weve all set New Years resolutions and broken them 23 days later).

One of my first goals for 2016 is to concretely continue to improve my skills as your trainer. Ive already signed up (Je me suis déjà inscrite) for 2 international conferences to help me reach that goal! (YAY!)

Sure, itll cost time and money, but its a valuable investment that will make me better.

What are you going to do to become better in 2016?

Wishing you success and joy in 2016,
