Teenage Study Partners/Buddies/Friends

Postby blossomj229275 » November 7th, 2013 8:51 am

HEY GUYS!!
I started JapanesePod this June...I've been studying since the 10th grade but I'm no where near FLUENCY (I'm a Senior now). I'm looking for teenagers/college bound students to study Japanese with. I'm on the Beginner-Lower Intermediate level. We can try to email, or chat online. Even snail mail will do. I just need someone to practice my Japanese with. It doesn't matter where you live. :oiwai:

blossomj229275-san,
thank you for opening this thread!
And it's really great to have young learners like yourself! :oiwai:

There are many teenage listeners on J-Pod, so I hope you can find some good study buddies! :wink:

初めまして Blossom色々な数字さん (^▽^)
はじめまして Blossomいろいろなすうじさん
私はブラッドです。フレッシュマンです。
よろしくお願いします
I'm just gonna assume that you can read this second line.
I'd be happy to help you with studying. Where I live I've no one (in close proximity at least) to speak with so I've been trying to look for people around my age to study with. I've been studying (seriously) since about June of this year, but I have enough basic knowledge to be counted as some where in the intermediate level, but to be honest I think I'm at least high beginner.

こんにちわブラッド。Sorry I haven't replied sooner! I had to wait to renew my JapanesePod until after Christmas!! Yes I can read parts of what you typed (THANK GOODNESS). We could totally study together. I've been serious with Japanese for about a year now. We need to find a way to keep in touch!! ありがとうございます。

Well I have added you as a friend on this website, though I'm not sure if there is a way to do private messages (that and I'm terrible at looking for things so I couldn't find it on my own). But if we could end up figuring something out I'd be fine with email or skype or something. I don't have Line or kik or any of those things because I don't have a smartphone.

I added you too! Um I don't have skype...I used to have LINE but deleted it! I'm going to ask someone on here who knows how we can communicate other than making posts. But i'll get back to you.

Alright, well I don't have a Line because I don't have a smart phone, but maybe we could possibly think of something that works.

blossomj229275-san, ブラッドsan,
こんにちは。
I'll ask my team about on-site possibilities of communication.
In meanwhile, social network could also help you sending messages as well as emails.
Viber also allow Japanese writings if you have Japanese character on your mobiles (I'm terrible at IT
or any technology, so, sorry if this is a feature of only smart phones...)
Messangers or ooVoo would work just like Skype.
Hope you can figure out some good way to communicate :wink:

ありがとうございます、奈津子さん。
とにかく, Blossumさん、If you click my user name, it will send you to a screen with like the various contact information. I put my email there. It's going to say "Jabber" next to it. It's not a jabber adress I just figured that well "Email adress";"Jabber adress" might as well just fit it in.

NemuiKitsune-san,
どういたしまして。
By the way, I've just noticed your footer line saying such a lovely thing! :D
I just wanted to let you know that it'd be 世界が instead of 世界の
hoping to have a nice line fixed :wink:

そうですか?では、変更しました。
I don't remember where I had heard it, but I had decided to remember it and recently just put it in as the signature. I knew there was something slightly wrong but I wasn't sure. また、ありがとうございました。
それじゃ、ファイナル試験のために勉強しhましょう!(お~!)

I've found that using Lang 8 is a great way study Japanese. They also have other learners one there too, so If you want to join its free. My username is Asia :kokoro: :kokoro:

Ooh, how inconvenient xD. I had deleted my Lang 8 account a few days ago because I had become REALLY inactive on that site (not to say I didn't learn a bunch of other things using that site). Though, I also never ended up getting a chance interact with anyone apart from correcting english posts or having mine corrected.
