I tried attending classes before .. got the basics .. but not much use because didn't get the chance to practice.

Thought a good way would be to have Japanese friends or friends who know Japanese ... get them to converse in Japanese ... and through this method, gain exposure to the language.

There's a Japanese Meetup Group here where members gather regularly. Joined them once. Quite interesting.

I am learning Japanese too. Just sign up for the course with Cambridge. Looking forward to know some friends who speak Japanese as well.
