"There are sites that you can join for the sole purpose of meeting people and studying language, such as My Language Exchange.com, xLingo and EduFire. EduFire offers quite a few free classes, but you can also buy a subscription to access additional classes.

Many language learning sites have forums in which you can participate. Free Japanese Lessons.com has lessons available on their site, but you must register to access everything. Paid learning sites are another option, like JapanesePod101 (which does have a free option, too)."Source
