I'm also new to this web site (I think I see a pattern going on here). Want to no a bit about me?

ぼくの名前はチャールズです。男です。ニューヨークに住む。私はストニブルークに勉強する。アニメとSFとクラシック大好きです。

OK, I hope that's at least somewhat understandable. Anyways, it'd be nice to find other people to practice with, so I hope to hear more from you.

さよなら。

Btw... If you google.com search "Japanese penpals" you will find there are quite a few sites that are specifically designed for finding you that japanese speaking friend. I did this when i was 15, though most of my pals have moved on. :(

I will check to see if the few I found the most productive are still around and will post the Addy's in a bit.

And here they are:
Japan-guide.com's Penpal Service - Free
http://www.japan-guide.com/penfriend/index_e.php
(a good Japan reference site too)

MyLanguageExchange.com - Free
http://www.mylanguageexchange.com/

Penpal Party - Free w/ Teacher Aides
http://www.penpalparty.com/lookforpals.html
(My high school spanish teacher used this site if im not mistaken)

Japan Penpal Club - Free but reminds me of the classifieds
http://www.lang.nagoya-u.ac.jp/~matsuoka/cgi-bin/penpal/bbs-penpal.cgi

Hope this helps ya... I am currently looking for some new Penpals from Japan myself.


P.S. @ Shindig - you had a frownie in there too :-P

What's on the top of your list of thing that you saw in Japan?

And I also would like someone to chat and study with.

I'd love to be penpals with someone learning Japanese. I'm not very proficient at Japanese yet, but I'm not a complete beginner either. Oh, and does anyone know how to get Japanese font on MSN? Thanks.

You should be able to type Japanese characters using Global IME, exactly the same way as you would in any other program.
