I know how to learn how to read and write Japanese via Core 6k and sentences. My question is how can one learn to speak? I'm in high school and there aren't a lot of native Japanese speakers near me. How should I go about practicing my speech?
If you can, getting a language partner can be very valuable. Even if you think there aren't many Japanese people, place an ad in Kijiji or Craigslist, whichever is more popular in your area. If you feel gutsy, write to a language school where Japanese students go. Surprisingly, that worked for me.
