I've been studying japanese for one year, and I know once I got really into it, I wanted to talk to japanese people so I can practice and possibly make some friends. So, since this is a site for SCANDAL, and I know theres a lot of japanese students on here that might want some friends in Japan, so I decided to make this post to show you guys this really cool site I came across a couple of months ago.
1) At the tip top of the page, you'll see sign in/sign up blah blah blah. Sign up.
2) Once you make your account, you'll be directed back to the site because you verified your email. At the top of the home page where all the links,subjects etc are, you'll see "Friends".
3) Click friends,(if your taken to a page that has Japan-Pen-Friend in big letters on the left side, and something big on the right side, just click Japan Pen-Friend) and you'll be taken to a page where it has all these options and stuff to find the kind of people you want to talk to. At the top of that box, you'll see " post a new ad".
4) Post your ad, introduce yourself, and people that are interested will message you on the site. You can also look at other people's introductions, and message them if your interested.
I've been on the site for a couple months now, and I've gotten plenty of replies, and I even made a really good friend named Hitomi. Remember, not everyone is going to reply to you so don't get upset or anything. Just keep sending people messages, make your ad, and the people that REALLY want to be your friend will talk to you and stay to the end. A lot of Japanese are shy with foreigners, so be patient. =)
Well, thats about it you guys. I just wanted to share that with you.Have fun!
Thanks for reading,
