Same old languages for me.
I recently found this service that lets you practise your languages via song lyrics:http://lyricstraining.com
It is an amazing service, very enjoyable and makes you memorize song lyrics very quickly. Adding your lyrics is simple, too, and even if your lyrics don't pass the review process and get officially published on their website, you can still use them personally and share with friends.
For example this is a child song I added for Turkish for the Teachers' Day that Turkey celebrated on Nov 24. The lyrics are very simple so those of you who know basics of Turkish can try it out:http://lyricstraining.com/play/cocuk-sa ... HbW8nMdixb
I'm going to use this service for all my languages, by practising lyrics via the website, and then putting them into my mp3 player and listening on the go. This way I'll spend less time at the computer too.
[flag=]tr[/flag] - I have a confident B2 and I think I'd easily pass a C1 test, too. There is still a lot to learn, though. I'll try to read more (novels and news) and learn from songs, too.

[flag=]ku[/flag] (Kurmanji) - I have fallen in love with this language. If I don't learn it my life won't be complete. My current level is around A2. For practice, I'll use songs (I love nearly every Kurdish song out there), and try to talk more to my Kurdish friends. My priority is being able to converse, not so much to read and write.
Amazing Kurdish-Russian dictionary - http://www.kurdonline.ru
.It's an electronic version of the dictionary of the famous Soviet-Kurdish Kurdologist Kanat Kurdoyev (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Qanate_Kurdo

It's great that I can find lyrics for almost every Kurdish song that I like.
An example of a song I can't

Maybe someone can use their searching capabilities to help me out with this song.
[flag=]ar[/flag] (Standard Arabic) - My priority is to be able to read the Qur'an and other religious texts.
I was surprised I couldn't find glossed translation of the Qur'an into Russian. I encountered articles though saying that word for word translation is prohibited because it can distort the original meaning.
I also thought of playing with Syrian Arabic (it could be fun given that I have some Syrian friends), not sure I'll have enough time and motivation.
