Japanese School / English Exchange

Apr 23, 2015
Hey everyone,

First post here, so thanks in advance for your patience...

Never been to Japan, but am currently learning Japanese, because I want to go.
I'm interested in interactions with native Japanese people.
I'm going to a Japanese language school here in the US, and I exchange language online with Japanese people.

So, my questions are...
Is it possible to be sponsored for a student visa by a Japanese language exchange school?
Are there schools that offer language exchanges to native Japanese with their students (me!)?
Can you recommend some good schools?
How long does such an arrangement usually last?

Other potentialy useful information:
I am 28 years old, very gaijin-y looking redhead.

Thanks for your kindness!
