Speak with native Japanese speakers in VRChat

こんにちは, @doutatsu ! Sorry to bump this post after almost a year later. Do you still go to VRChat, and if so, do you go there on Sundays?

I haven’t really explored VRChat yet despite having an account there for awhile because most of my Second Life friends aren’t that interested to use it. Since I just re-started learning Japanese from the very beginning, I thought maybe I could use this motivation to try both VRChat again and practice speaking Japanese there.

So it would be awesome if you could be there as a guide because my Japanese and VRChat knowledge are really limited. Wish I could go on Saturdays, but unfortunately I have Japanese lessons in Second Life every Saturday.

Hope to hear if you’re still meeting people in VRChat or not. If you still do, please remind me again what time in JST do you go there? My account name is Haruka Flores. Thank you so much for your time and sorry for any inconveniences. よろしくお願いします。

Added VRChat to the Ultimate Additional Japanese Resources List in the Speaking section with this thread linked as a Use Guide. Potentially could also be added to the Listening section, but it might be best if both sections were rearranged anyway.

Heya :wave: It’s been awhile since I’ve been on VRChat, it’s been a crazy year after all. But I’d like to get back to it again, just need to clear up the schedule. Can’t say I would be a great guide, as my spoken Japanese is my weakest point :frowning_face: I’ll add you on VRChat though and I’ll see when I could hop on to show you around, Sunday works as well. Timewise, it’s usually 7pm JST

If Sunday 7pm JST would be a bit difficult for you, I could make myself available on Tuesday - Thursday about the same time if those days are more convenient for you.

I think you will be a great guide for me in VR Chat as I’m a total noob there and my Japanese is quite basic too. I’m only on Level 6 in Kanji afterall :grin: However, I’m really looking forward to hang out with you there while listening to people speaking in Japanese. Perhaps someday I’ll be able to take part in the conversation.

Really appreciate your reply and hope I’m in no way imposing your possibly packed schedule. ありがとうございました。

Since I am a total noob in VR Chat, I wasn’t sure if you need my account name or my display name to add me as a friend. In case my account name Haruka Flores doesn’t work, try Hana Haruka instead. Sorry for the trouble! >.<

I’ve added you now. I am currently moving apartments, so won’t be able to join anytime soon I am afraid, as I won’t have internet at a new place for awhile :weary: I’ll keep you posted tho

Oh no, I can imagine the stress of moving to a new apartment! You don’t have to worry about coming in VR Chat anytime soon because my schedule on Sundays are changing too. I might just linger around for a couple of hours about the same time between Thursday - Saturday instead.

I’ll be on the lookout for your post after things have settled down for you :slight_smile: Good luck and hope things will get better after they are back in its (new) place.

@distantflower I’m on VRChat too! Just add me at my username @Tahazameel

はじめまして、Tahazameelさん。Awesome, I will add you when I log in VRChat tomorrow! :smiley:

I’ll likely to hang around there for a couple of hours starting from 7pm - 9pm JST on Thursdays - Saturdays. Hope those time and days won’t be much of a problem for you. See you there!
