I just read about an app called Polyglot Club. It gathers people - travellers and locals alike - to designated places in different cities and countries so they can practice their language skills with other tourists or the native speakers. It sounds pretty cool and is available in quite a few places. I haven't tried it out yet but it sounds pretty cool. Here's the link: http://polyglotclub.com/
Learn a foreign language: online and offline language exchange, educational resources. Community of teachers and students from all around the world. Register for free and find a native speaker.

I've been studying Japanese on and off for a couple of years so I'd say I'm between N4 and N3 but I would love to write and/or chat with someone of any level. I miss speaking Japanese!

I tried to download WeChat once but I had trouble getting it to work. I'll try again. That voice message thing sounds good!

Question!

I always have trouble with Japanese synonyms but the dictionaries don't always do a good job of explaining nuances in languages. For example, what is the difference between 会見 (kaiken) and 面接 (mensetsu) for interviews and 手紙 (tegami) and 封書 (fusho) for letters and can they really be used interchangeably?

Try Jim Breen's dictionary:

Common words has [P] and example sentences are quite useful.
