Maybe you're taking it as a college class or maybe you're studying at home by yourself, but no matter how you look at it learning a new language is H-A-R-D!
One of the toughest aspects of learning a new language is the practical application. Sure, you can memorize the vocabulary and recite all the grammar rules, but having an actual, non-scripted conversation is a whole different bucket of fish.
That's what this group is for. It's a place to meet people who are learning Japanese and want to practice. This is not a "class" where someone would hand out homework and everyone would be required to use the same textbook.
Native speakers who'd like to lend a helping hand are more than welcome as well!
Come to group meetings where you to meet with your study buddies in an open and public forum. This is a GREAT way for you to find someone who is interested, and in your skill level.
