I'm a Japanese-language student. I studied the language in my home country (India), but now I want to learn it in Japan. This July I planned to take JLPT N3, but it got canceled. Now I can take it in December only, until then I can't even work because I don't hold an N3 certificate, which is the minimum requirement to work.

I have applied for a Japanese-language course in Fukuoka University and my session will begin in September. If I don't get a visa I don't know what I'm going to do. It's really a depressing situation. Moreover I have paid my university fee. If the university only provides online classes, then it's not beneficial because I have already learned the language in my country. I want to learn by living among Japanese people.
