New Year's resolutions

Happy New Year, guys!
Are you having a good time? I don't mean to be a killjoy, but we're going back to  school in a week , and I've thought that providing you with some warm up for our first lesson of 2012 would help us to get cracking.
Making New Year's resolutions is a sort of tradition for lots of people every year. If you click here , you'll listen to some people in London talking about  this topic.
Take note of any useful language you'll need for the lesson.
Think of your answers for these questions as well:
  • Do you ever make New Year's resolutions?
  • Do you usually stick to them?
  • What have you resolved to do in 2012?
