Chatrooms, Sns, Penpal website, Discord channels If you have got any of this kind of "resources" I would be glad if you could share it here.
I use hello talk, lang8, hinative but still have trouble finding language exchange partners, well maybe it's just me. There were other mediums I used as well but I like the way Hello Talk is designed to deter perverts.
I managed to have a conversation about PC parts once.
You can usually find some on any map with "Japan" in its name.
You can find good language partners here but be prepared to wade through a bunch of girls who just want someone to entertain them and make absolutely no effort to drive conversation. Plus, if you're really having trouble finding a language exchange partner, then you can get a community tutor and chat with them. Some people might think this is weird, but I've made a few Japanese friends on VRChat, and I barely speak it.
They actually seem to find it interesting to talk to foreigners trying to struggle through Japanese.
Though it isn't entirely pervert proof, it has been doing well for me so far!
of creepy 50 year old drunk Japanese women constantly messaging me, and none of them really broke any rules, but they still made me uncomfortable and I didn't want to deal with their messages arriving at all hours of the day and night.
I notice that I receive very few chat requests when I use a katakana name and/or indicate that I am learning Japanese.
Tons of girls on here just want to talk with foreign guys because they are bored or want to find a foreign boyfriend. I just started learning Japanese, and there are way more Japanese people on there.
A few girls told me outright they dreamed of marrying a foreigner. I live in Tokyo so I find the social media side of it quite useful, but it's become way more about chatting up foreigners and way less about explicitly trying to learn anything. Haven't had the courage to start a Japanese conversation yet though. They have notebook section where you can post a journal entry and have it corrected.
This will not affect your score: Or to see the whole conversation in Romaji, change the setting “Prompts in Japanese script” to Off: When you move the mouse over the video window, you can see the “repeat” button and the volume slider.
Use the “repeat” button to hear the last prompt again: The “text and video” combo can be changed to “text only” or “video only”: Double-click the “Info window” where the hints are displayed to hide it: To bring the Info window back, double-click the grab control on the right side of the video window.
One of them is 毎日英語と日本語, a friendly Discord chat with a bunch of learners of various levels to practice with and ask questions of.
