So, I tried using HelloTalk and found someone. We talked for a few days and then she invited me to a group on LINE where I could talk about anime/manga. I thought this would be a great opportunity to practice my Japanese and entered the group. But now, I feel a bit scared, I just sorta introduced myself on the group and there hasn’t been much conversation since then (this happened a few hours ago). I would describe myself as just above N4. But, due to thousands of hours of watching anime, I think I have an okayish passive vocabulary and grammar skills. I am able to follow through most of the conversations, but boy do I take a long time when writing something myself.
Now, the answer is clear, practice theory and apply it. If you’re wrong, you’ll get corrected (maybe). I was hoping to get tips from people who are more experienced. Maybe they went through a similar situation during the early days of their learning journey.
