Slay your English goals in the year of the Dragon 

Sharing is caring!

If you believe in second chances, you’ll love the fact that the much of Asia celebrate their New Year about 6 weeks after those who follow the Julian calendar. This gives you a whole new chance to get back on track to aim for your language goals! Another difference is that each year has a creature associated with it which Is said to determine characteristics – much like the concept of the zodiac. 

In 2024, between February 9th and 15th, the Lunar New Year is celebrated and this time around it is the year of the dragon  –  which symbolises power, nobleness, honour, luck, and success.  

We have English schools in a number of cities that have an awesome Chinatown district so you can partake in the festivities. You can choose English courses for adults in London , or head to EC New York, EC Vancouver or EC San Francisco – all are all world renowned. 

What’s your Sign 

Perhaps check your sign to see which type you are if the choices are too much for you; you could be a rat, dog, horse, pig, monkey, rabbit, goat, rooster, ox, snake or tiger… 

If you are a dragon, the only ‘mythical’ creature celebrated, and being a supernatural being has no parallel for talent and excellence, however, like with the other signs, has one of five elements associated with it; gold, water, wood, fire, earth and depending on which of these you fall under, can change the dynamic of your personality. 

Dragons are generally considered enthusiastic and confident; they are not afraid of challenges and are willing to take risks. This can be mistaken for being aggressive but actually are just perfectionists wanting a smooth future.
