    goal

    To be a teacher is another goal for me or To be a teacher is another goal of mine?
    Are both correct?
    Thanks

    Re: goal

    Yes, you could also say: My other goal is to be a teacher.
    I am not a teacher.

    Re: goal

    That is not the same, Ted. It implies that the OP has only two goals. In the original he might have three or more.

    ronao, your second sentence is much more natural. You can also say 'To be a teacher is another of my goals'.

    Re: goal

    OK, I suppose you cannot say "my another goal", so it has to be "another goal of mine".
