Or you could come live with me. :P

Oh, wait, that means you`d have to actually get to Japan first. And your parents would no doubt think I`m some sort of weird child molester or something. I`m 26...

We used to lend our spare room out, but last year a girl really wasted our time and screwed us over so we haven`t done so since. Never had anyone younger than 16 stay though.

Nyororin, i think its really kind of you to offer up your home to stranger, its a pity you got burned

maybe we could talk online?, i really want to learn Japanese, but im a slow learner when it comes to languages and some sort of tuition would be wonderful

thanks for being so kind and open with us, im glad your life is better now

I`m happy to talk online with anyone who wants...
The girl who screwed us over seemed really serious... before she got here and for the first week or so. After that she seemed to think that by sitting around in her room, playing video games, and randomly flipping through our manga that she would somehow magically become fluent. I guess she believed Japan was some magical paradise where you never had to put forth any sort of effort to accomplish anything. When I forced her to go out and attend some free Japanese classes, she freaked out and started blaming me for ruining her trip to Japan and destroying her dream, etc etc.

It really sucked. Yes, real life does continue even when you`re in a different country.

And I guess I forgot to mention, I`m female. :P

There are free classes offered all over the city. You could probably attend a 2 or 3 hour class every day for free if you wanted.

Good luck. If you have the determination (and forgiving/neglectful enough parents) it can be done.
One thing I do suggest is making sure you are not around ANY other English speakers... Because no matter how much you may want to learn Japanese, everyone ends up taking the path of least resistance (Ie. talking in English). If you don`t have that option you can`t take it, so you learn MUCH more quickly and efficiently.

I only heard English in the English classes, a couple hours every couple days. Otherwise, it was 100% Japanese. No English speaking friends or anything. It sucked at first - but I was good enough at Japanese to hold an hour long phone conversation after only 3 months. Better than ANY of the English speaking exchange students I encountered were after an entire *year* of being here. They would get stressed and speak to each other in English all the time, so their Japanese never improved much.
