Hello guys,

as we all know, this year will be soon slowly over and year

is ahead. It would be nice, if you just slowed down, relaxed and started to think about all the positives, negatives, good or bad lessons, moments of happiness this year gave you. You can talk about yourself, you can talk about EnglishClub, it is up to you, which do you prefer. Record yourself on this topic and one more tip:

You can also add some New Year's resolutions and wishes for other members or EC ;-)

Thank you all so much for participating, for your nice words and comments and last but not least for joining this group. See you with new task in the year 2015 and I wish you all the best, especially to stay healthy!

    I made mistake on my last sentence, I meant 2015 not 2014, lol!, My grammar and tenses was not that well. Please be patient upon listening to me.

    Happy New year everyone!

  • Here is my record.. thanks for listening

    Many thanks to Luci for helping kill my fear of talking...


  • The reading part is tricky. I can drink but how can I be a husband? :P

    • Pixy,

      is it such a big deal to change it little bit? :-p you can say: better wife to Peter for example :-D if you have this gender problem :-D

  • Hello everyone!1

    Thanks Luci for bring up this very interesting task. first of all, I must be grateful to the all might Allah for making me to see 2015 I am really happy and glad about that. As I hope and pray for many goodies happen for my family and I.

    Honestly, 2014 was a very challenging year for me because I didn't meet up with all of what I had in my plans to do. I hope and pray that 2015 be  a better year for me.

    I will post my record later on.
