Searching for Japanese Pen Pal!!

Hey friends!

If it isn’t made evident by the title, I am on the look out for a Japanese-speaking pen pal (sorry if you were actually just part Japanese and assumed I was actually looking for a pen pal to talk to of Japanese descent LOL, this isn’t the case). Anyways, why am I searching?? Because I’m currently trying to learn Japanese as of the last two weeks!! I actually tried learning back when I was 10 years old which was many years ago, but somehow I’ve still retained some of my knowledge so it feels a little easier this time. I’m starting off very basic though and first trying to learn Kana and just be able to read (and speak but that’s part of my retained knowledge, I just need to practice reading fluidly)! I am learning some vocabulary at the same time but I’m making reading and writing my priority. Now I know some people will think that I shouldn’t take the time to learn how to write since we have such great technology at our hands but I personally think it could help solidify my memory and plus, I still hand-write, like, everything!!

But enough of that, I’m hoping to make a new friend who is a native Japanese speaker to help me learn the nuances and colloquialisms of modern Japanese rather than sticking to the formal books y’know?

I know this is isn’t a normal blog post and probably more like an advertisement haha but I thought I would try anyway! So if anyone is willing to take on a poor little Filipino-American girl who speaks only English, elementary French, and half-understands Tagalog (awkward), please leave me a comment below telling me about yourself and stuff! If you happen to be a Japanese person who wants to learn English, I really would not mind helping you out with English either! I will try to find a way to contact you and hopefully we can get this show on the road!

Thank you so much!! ありがとうございます!

If no one answers this will be a little awkward and I will probably delete this post out of shame….LOL

  1. Hi. I’m not Japanese but I have made several pen pals over the years to help study Japanese. It’s a great way to learn.

    Just a suggestion – if you search for “Japanese pen pal” on google there are a few sites which might help you. One that I used several years ago is “http://www.hipenpal.com/new/index.php?ln=en”.
