I joined Lang-8.com on January 29th, 2009. Since that day, I have written more than 260 entries in Japanese. I love writing diaries. And I love Japanese language. So I'm very happy that I found Lang-8.com.
I have been studying Japanese by myself for a year. Before I joined, I knew many words and hieroglyphics, but I could hardly compose a sentence. Writing a diary on Lang-8.com really helped me a lot with my study. Now I can write my blog in Japanese.
On Lang-8.com I met many friends from different countries. They are very intelligent people with the same interest to learn language as me.
I'm writing a diary on Lang-8.com every day, because I really enjoy it. With every new entry, my Japanese becomes better. I'm so happy because of that!!
Lang-8.com is a social networking site. Unlike Facebook or MySpace, the purpose of Lang-8.com is learning a second language (or third, or fourth ...) while making international friends.
Lang-8.com basically works on the principle of "scratch my back and I'll scratch yours."
The easy 1, 2, 3 method:
In addition to language posts, Lang-8.com has many other cool language learning features:
