Yea, I know. Japan's really expensive.
I really hope you can get to study here.
If ever you got a scholarship do you need to pay it back once you get a job?

Nah, scholarships work differently than loans. Basically, an organization or committee hands you free money and says "you can have this money, but you can only use it for _____." So in my case, I can only use it for a study abroad. But I wouldn't have to pay it back ever, no.

Hi! I would love to help you (or anyone else interested) practice English! I'm a Linguistics major who is studying to become an ESL teacher, so I could probably help you practice. I also am good at explaining English grammar and idioms, if you ever had questions.
Anyways, if you're interested, then feel free to friend or PM me whenever you want.


Always nice to see a fellow linguist! ^-^

I speak Japanese pretty well, and Chinese alright. I'm learning Korean because I'll be living there pretty soon. (ah!) Other languages too, but I only really maintained the Asian ones. 4laugh

I can possibly help with English - I can't say how much I'll be online the next several months due to a new job and moving.

Woot! [: Nice to meet people who also love Asian languages. We don't have Korean here, or even a good Chinese program. Otherwise I'd be all over that.

Oh wow.
Here in Japan they call the loan also a scholarship. DX
There's also a scholarship that you dont need to pay afterwards.
But it's hard to get. You should have high grades or submit an entry and theyll interview you and so on.
And theres this scholarship w/c is actually a loan. Easy to get,just submit a form then voila.
But youll have to pay it afterwards once you find a job after graduating.

I hope that made sense. ><

Hi there! How are you?

Hello! Im fine but a bit tired. XD
And you? heart
Hi! I'm also studying foreign language and like to help people. I studied Japanese when I was in college. Now, I'm working - it's not as easy to learn when you have a job. I mostly learn/practice foreign language with friends ^.^ I've looked for some classes, but they seem a bit expensive. I have a TON of Japanese language study books, and a few Korean. I don't know about anybody else, but I have had a hard time finding good Korean study books at bookstores. Barnes & Noble seems to have a pretty decent selection on Japanese and Chinese, but not Korean. I've had to order my main Korean language books from Amazon gonk

It did make sense [:
Here, it is very difficult to get scholarships also. Even loans can be hard to get.
Often, we have to submit reference letters and stuff to be considered, plus we have to have good grades and be what is considered "financially needy". The hardest part for me is that I'm not considered financially needy enough to get scholarships. My family is right on the line where it's hard to pay for college, but the government/school won't help out much at all sweatdrop

The "financially needy" is the most important part. sweatdrop
