    ¡A reflexionar sobre los objetivos!

    Goal setting, Paso 1. As we are working to be our best language learners, we need to regularly check in on our progress toward our goals. Use the questions below to reflect upon the goals you set for yourself at the beginning of the chapter.

    My two short term goals were:

    1. _______________________________________________________________________________

    · Did you follow your action plan? In what way(s)? What worked? What didn’t work?

    · _______ I have achieved this goal/ ________ I made progress toward this goal/ _______ I have not made progress toward this goal and should make a revision to my goal or my action plan.

    2. _______________________________________________________________________________

    · Did you follow your action plan? In what way(s)? What worked? What didn’t work?

    · _______ I have achieved this goal/ ________ I made progress toward this goal/ _______ I have not made progress toward this goal and should make a revision to my goal or my action plan.

    My one long-term goal was:

    3. _______________________________________________________________________________

    · Did you follow your action plan? In what way(s)? What worked? What didn’t work?

    · _______ I have achieved this goal/ ________ I made progress toward this goal/ _______ I have not made progress toward this goal and should make a revision to my goal or my action plan.

    How do you feel about your initial greatest fear about learning Spanish? Better? Worse? Why?

    ¡A revisar los objetivos!

    Goal setting, Paso 2. Before moving on to the next chapter, take a moment to update your goals and/or action plans. It is okay to keep goals that you set for yourself previously if you are still working toward them.

    My two short term goals with action plans:
