Dustin Hoffman has decided to learn a new language as part of his New Year's resolutions.

The Graduate star has made a list of plans to complete in 2013 and he wants to start by educating himself and learning new skills.

He tells Parade.com, "I want to learn a new language, even though I barely know English, and I want to read the books that have been sitting on my shelves for years. But the main thing is that I want to learn more about myself. I think we spend a lifetime trying to find out who we are."
