This is a community for anything related to learning the Japanese language.

Allowed content: questions, tips, information, practice posts, discussions, and anything else that seems relevant to talk to other learners about (or eventual fluent speakers who want to teach).

Not allowed: stuff that isn't related to learning Japanese in any way (including posts about Japanese media/etc if the topic doesn't somehow relate to learning the language).

General rules:

- Post relevant content in your posts (see above). Comments are more open to variation, but please keep very personal discussions to PMs between users, or your personal journals.

- Be nice, don't be elitist or judgmental, etc.

- No starting fights. Disagree politely and respect others.

- Don't spam the community. Try to post a maximum of once a day (per user). If you came up with something else to post, you can save it until tomorrow. There is no recommended limit to commenting, of course.

- Posts and comments in both English and Japanese are allowed, but if you're going to write in any other language, please include a translation or summary of your writing in either English or Japanese so that more users can have a chance at understanding what you're writing in the community. Even though posting exclusively in Japanese is allowed, it might help beginners if you include a translation or summary as well, although it's not required.

- Tag your posts! It helps keep things tidy and makes it easy for everyone to search through the community for specific posts.

- Contact the mod(s) if you want new tags added, or if you have other problems or questions.

I started using Twitter to practise my Japanese reading and writing recently. I think it's useful to see these short messages that don't feel overwhelming to work through and translate (using online tools like Rikaichan and dictionaries). Of course, there are tons of different Japanese-language Twitter accounts you could follow, so I think there's something for everyone.

Does anyone else use Twitter to practise?
