Q: How to get a Japanese language friend?

Hi~ I want to know how I can find a Japanese language friend. 

 

I am learning Japanese these days but have no chance to practice at all.  I am a native Chinese and I can speak English well. My friend recommended me to come here. So... any idea? 

 

Have you thought about getting a language friend?  And how did you do it?

 

Thanks in advance.

Start with anyone of these Japanese penpal websites.  You will need to create, be registered and then you can browse and choose.

Or you could write to Matty , but that would be a intergalactic thing so the postage could get a little expensive

Like I tell everyone, if you want a language partner, place an ad on various dating websites or classified ad. Search QQ  , WeChat or momo. If you want a friend, learn to see people as people.

I use this site to find language exchanges:

http://www.languageforexchange.com/

This one was actually the best source so far. I found 5-6 contacts through Language for Exchange, and after about a month or so the list was narrowed down to 3 people with whom I regularly talk.

Here is a link to a website:  www.livemocha.com

where you can not only learn languages but also interact with your peers. In your case a Japanese man or woman might correct your written or spoken exercises and give you feedback. The basic course is free.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
