Wow! I actually understood most of what everyone said! (except Jun, sorry, little too advanced for me.)
I've just spent more time studying and listening than actually talking and that's a very bad thing. The times that I actually learn the most is chatting with people online. There's a really good site for that called, Ummmm, *goes into trance-like state*, www.japan-guide.com
. It always has people from all over practicing. For the most part, I see french, german, dutch, and japanese.
Try it out.
(Goes back to working all the time and lamenting the fact that there's just not enough time for everything.)
