Hi, I'm Japanese and living in Australia... hmm, communication must be hard.. hmm, when I used to live up north of Australia with a Korean girl, she couldn't speak English at all, but we managed to communicate by using Korean/Japanese and using dictionary to communicate a lot! Using dictionary and communicating is a good way. What we did was, my Korean friend had electronic dictionary so I just typed English words and she would translate that into Korean and we communicate like that and I taught her English as well.
I hope that would help!
Hmm, look through cooking book with her and cook some food with her?
You posted this a long while ago, but I just read it today.. I'm living in Japan - been here for the past year. As for food ideas: RICE. Rice and fish. hehehehe... just kidding (kinda).
I hope all's well with you and your exchange student! God bless.

And they cried out in a loud voice: “Salvation belongs to our God, who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb.” (Rev 7:10)
"Stand up and praise the LORD your God, who is from everlasting to everlasting."
Blessed be your glorious name, and may it be exalted above all blessing and praise. You alone are the LORD. You made the heavens, even the highest heavens, and all their starry host, the earth and all that is on it, the seas and all that is in them. You give life to everything, and the multitudes of heaven worship you. (Nehemiah 9:5b-6)
Saki my name is Amy. I live in the U.S. I'm learning Japanese. Granted the amount of Japanese I know isn't that impressive, because I'm still learning. However I have been looking for somebody who is Japanese to attempt conversational Japanese with (as in writing). I could also really use help with learning some of the different parts of the language. If you're interested, please send
me a private message.
konnichiwa, ogenki desu ka?
(koe nee chee wah, oh gen kee de soo kah?)
Which means "Hello, how are you?"
Then she will say:
genki desu, arigatou. ogenki desu ka?
hai, genki desu yo, shikkocho.
And then if she starts talking in Japanese say:
gomennasai, watashi wa wakarimasen, eigo ga wakarimasu ka?
(goe men nah sah ee, wah tah she wah wah kah ree mah sen, e ee goe gah wah kah ree mahs kah?)
Which means "Sorry, I dont understand, do you understand English?"
Then if she says yes, then go with it.
