Need Help for Friend with regards to Socializing and Career

Postby Masquerade444 » Wed, 31 May 2017 1:00 pm

Hi, I am asking for a rather-specialized favour and kind of help for a friend of mine who is currently studying and working concurrently. He was very anti-social and had very few friends in his younger schooling years, and is currently lacking opportunities for face-to-face interaction with others.

He did not join a club in school because studying and working already took up too much of his time, and wants to spend more time on his interests, and is also unmotivated to make friends in school due to the part-time nature of his course making it hard for him to do so. He feels that despite feeling lonely, he prefers to spend more time researching into the fields that he is interested in.

Currently, he is interested in moving to Japan to be an English teacher in the future and is also somewhat interested in doing talent management. He also wants to start self-study Japanese on his own soon, however, he finds it a very lonely experience to learn solely from textbooks and talking to people online, yet his financial background and parental objection makes it hard for him to pay for regular Japanese lessons.

He would also like to know if there are any places he can go to, or contacts that he can be referred to, to make friends with Japanese people, to learn more about their culture firsthand.
Any constructive advice on this matter is appreciated.
