What I did, was to pick up my interests, as a good Latina I like dancing but also singing, and try to search in Samedan, where I live, activities involving these hobbies, this would help me meet people from the region with the same interests and learn the languages. First, I went to Zumba courses, unfortunately, I met there a lot of Spanish speakers (I do love catching up with other Latins but this would not help me reach my language goal), I had forgot that people in the valley are not too keen on dancing but they do like SINGING.
My interest in singing led me to Cor Mixt Da Samedan. This is an association of singers from different parts of the valley being more than 300 years old. Most of the members speak Rumantsch and all of them speak German. In spite of my limited knowledge in both tongues, I could immediately follow the songs in German, Rumantsch, French, Slavic, Latin, etc. Music is just amazing! I could not read music notes but the melody makes it easy to remember any Lyrics, any Language. Moreover, being part of this choir has been useful to get to know some regional composers, such as: Cantieni, Klainguti, Morell, just to mention some.
I may not be singing with the correct pronunciation, and that is the fun of it, because one of the obstacles for any language beginner is the fear to say it wrong, but when you must say it among others, this fear just disappears, believe me!
And, do not forget that singing makes you happier and learning languages makes you live longer (M. Spitzer ,2013).
