Other questions about "Maternity"

Q: I am getting maternity leave till next year, so I decided to learn English.
My goal is using English in business and I wanna be assigned a new post abroad in my company.
At first I have watched TV drama, “desparate housewives” to improve listening comprehension. It’s really fun and I’m into that, but it turned out my English will never improve by that method. Because today I watched it without subtitle, I cannot understand almost all of their conversation.
So I changed my method to read script and research what phrases I cant understand means. It is really hard for me because there are too much phrases I have never seen. does this sound natural?
A: To be honest, you sound almost fluent. You make some mistakes when it comes to verbs when there’s a plural, but apart from that I don’t see a problem really. Your method to learn English is good, but if you want to start it easy and improve little by little, I’d recommend downloading some apps. For example, Duolingo, Memrise and even this one if you have questions that need to be answered quickly.
