Each week we teach a new learning strategy. The first one is Set a Goal.

When we set a goal, we decide what we want to do or learn.

What do you want to learn? Here is an example:

Pat works at a coffee shop. She wants to greet her customers in English. She sets a goal: "In three months, I will feel confident in greeting customers in English."

Learning Strategies are the thoughts and actions that help make learning easier or more effective. Setting a goal is an important learning strategy because it gives you a strong reason to keep studying.

apartment - n. a usually rented room or set of rooms that is part of a building and is used as a place to live. She lives in an apartment.

meet - v. to see and speak to someone for the first time. Pete meets Anna on the street.

nice - adj. good and enjoyable . It is nice to see you.
