Looking for someone to practice my writing with

Post by Eiuol » Mon 08.10.2009 11:12 pm

I'm looking for someone who can help correct some mini-stories (only about 5-10 sentences long) that I'm writing each day for practice in vocabulary and grammar. The problem is I'm not always sure if my grammar is right. Through e-mail or MSN or AIM would be fine.

Hi, Eiuol.

I'm always happy to help you in this forum though, I unfortunately don't think I can do it through e-mails on a daily basis.
I don't know if it's appropriate to introduce other website here, there is a website called 'Lang-8'. I recommend you to check it out.

There's never been a problem linking people to other resourceful websites related to learning Japanese. Links only get people in trouble when they're for completely unrelated websites, or when they're posted by someone who only registered to advertise their site and never post again.

@Eiuol:
I'll second NileCat's recommendation that you check out lang8. You post paragraphs, blogs, stories, whatever and native speakers of the target language correct them (and you can help other people learn your language, too).

Thank you for your advice, Sairana.

In that website, I also have posted some entries for my English practice.
I would be grateful if someone would help me out there too.

Thank you.

NileCat is the name as same as here.
And It seems they somehow differentiate capital and small letters there.

EDIT: 08.18.2009
I deleted my account at the website.
It is a very good site though, I just felt it wasn't my cup of tea. :roll:

I terms of studying Japnese, one problem I found at that website was that it would be difficult to get an answer to your further question ' why it is wrong? ' .
In that respect, I found this TJP site was very unique and great.


EDIT: * In terms of studying Japanese *

That's true at least in the beginning, once you have your groups of "friends" is not unusual to check a diary later for question or for a simple chit-chat.
