Welcome Czenny! I thought of the same thing. For me it was to learn Russian from the songs of the Russian music group Chaif, ЧАЙФ

Actually I want to learn Russian the Zsa Zsa way:

"The only way to learn a language properly, in fact, is to marry a man of that nationality. You get what they call in Europe a 'sleeping dictionary.' Of course, I have only been married five times, and I speak seven languages. I'm still trying to remember where I picked up the other two."
 ~ Zsa Zsa Gabor

When we studied English & Swedish in the university, we used to say the same. The best way to learn a language is to begin romantic relations with a native speaker. It does work.  Lol. After covering miles and miles pages of books on Lexis and Grammar.

Thank you Orchid!
There were some sad events in my life, my parents have gone, and I was not OK.
When I am in great sorrow I used to be alone and do not want communicating.

Music helps to recover.

I am so sorry to know that your parents have gone.
Stay with us...

When I am in great sorrow I used to be alone and do not want communicating.

That's exactly what I usually do.

By the way, your English is excellent.
