    language exchange with native Japanese

    Hello I am a native Japanese speaking lady living in HK for a couple of years.
    Anyone who wants to improve oral skill of Japanese, shall we do language exchange with casual situation? (over a cup of coffee or drinks)
    I am fluent in English so it would be great to chat with people from English speaking countries.
    I also interested in Italian, Spanish, and French.

    hi

    Hi,

    I am interested in learning japanese. I know some very basic japanese but I think it is not enough to have a real conversation with a japanese. ^-^ I could help you in cantonese anyway.

    Thank you for your reply Vivien,
    Actually I already gave up learning Cantonese...
    Yes I really enjoyed learning Cantonese when I was studying for rhe first time, but the tone is very difficult for me.
    Do you speak Latin languages? I am keen on learning those.

    hajime mashite watashi wa ka-ming desu, dozo yoroshiku!!

    I studied a module in japanese when i was in university, but it's been a few years since then, and i think my level is very basic. But i would love to pick up and practice it again!

    as for other languages i studied French for A-levels, but i'm afraid i've given all my knowledge back to the teacher!

    I love learning languages, just too bad that i'm not very good at retaining information ne?

    I have a lot of experience teaching Japanese people English...recent experience, too. I'd love to have a chat and learn some Japanese, I know the very basics and the food, though I speak Spanish and German too, but I'm not a Native speaker at those. Would love to learn some Cantonese, too....

    Hi Nene,

    I'd love to pick up more Japanese & learn it properly (have taken classes before but have forgotten most & what little i have now is very slack verbal Japanese.

    I'm fluent in english & cantonese, but not latin languages though. Would still love to meet up & just hang out (i hate the idea of actually sitting down somewhere regularly every week to "exchange" - too class like for me). PM me if u're keen~!

    Hi all,
    Thank you for your reply!
    Wow I didnt expect so many people are interested in doing exchange with Japanese... But I must say that Japanese is interesting language : )
    Sounds like you all are from everywhere! I am quite interested in where you guys exactly are from though.
    I dont know how to reply, so I will write down for each...

    Well, keto1-san,
    I love learning English so I am still taking some English courses here. I used to live in North America...but just for a year.

    Keroppi-san,
    I guess you will remember some Japanese once you started studying it again... it must be better than my German which I used to study in my Uni!!

    Jayinhongkong-san,
    Are you used to be an English teacher? You sound like you are from English speaking countries. I love to learn Spanish, but I know next to nothing about it!

    hei811-san,
    Yes it is a good idea to hang out... LKF or somewhere? LOL which I love!!

    If you guys have any idea in concrete to do language exchange, please let me know! Either reply to this thread or to me.
