How To Say – “New Year’s Resolution” in Irish (VIDEO)

The end of the year is, at least for some people, an opportunity for restarting their lives or to start doing new things. They manage to do this by creating New Year’s resolutions for themselves and sticking to them. Yes, it’s true that some wishes for the new year aren’t really doable, and some people might not see them through.

That happens mainly because people try to aim too high or set up unachievable goals for themselves.

Let’s say your goal for 2018 is to learn Irish. Setting that as your New Year resolution will probably result in you not even starting to learn, or giving up pretty fast. You want to set up an achievable goal for you in 2018, so here’s our recommendation.

Instead of setting an extremely difficult and vague goal, focus on ‘bitesize portions’ and create a schedule (which is probably the hardest thing to do, but if you manage to set up and stick to a schedule, you’ll achieve your New Year’s resolution.

People are habitual creatures, it’s enough to something small (and positive) each day to train your subconscious.

Here’s a little “fuel” for your New Year resolution. Use the following Irish pronunciation video and kick off the Irish language learning journey.
