Japanese Language House
The best way to learn Japanese in Cornell is to join the Japanese section of the language house (Anna Comstock Hall on North Campus). I was a member for over half of my time at Cornell and benefited immensely. You can speak Japanese 24 hours a day (including while you dream) there. Even if you aren't a member, you can join in dinner tables, events, tea hours, and if you're lucky , the yearly weekend adventure trip. This years native speaker is Yuko Hori.
