Japan Foundation for Japanese Learner
I meet many young Americans studying Japanese language but not everyone has good access to classes. If you are frustrated, please check online here
It's Japan Foundation website. You will find publications, book about learning Japanese/new language, fun Anime events, movies and lesson plans for educators. This website updates daily base and you see the newest information about Japan. The resource has been adulterated from many years of cultural exchange worldsidem especially between Japan and the USA.
If you are a college student looking for an oversea experience in Japan, check this website periodically, they offer various programs http://www.jpf.go.jp/e/japanese/index.html. If you are a K-12 students, just click around to find something fun - always I find something fun especially in Anime http://www.anime-manga.jp/. If you are a parent/educator, check http://www.tjf.or.jp/eng/index.html
Hope you enjoy!
