ひらがな​

Print out the hiragana stroke order and trace it to practice.

The characters in the table are called hiragana. Hiragana is the main alphabet set in Japanese.
 
There are two other alphabets in Japanese, kanji and katakana.  Katakana characters are used for words that have been borrowed from other languages.
 

There are five vowels in Japanese. The are pronounced in the following ways:

(a), “ahh”, 
(i), “eat” pronounced like “e”,
(u), “soon” pronounced like “oo”, 
(e), “elk” Pronounced like “e”, 

(o), pronounced “oh”. 

With the exception of (n), all hiragana characters end with one of these vowels.

There are no shortcuts to language learning. The best way to learn a language is not to take shortcuts, but to continue slowly. Don’t rush, just do your best little by little.

Once you start to improve a little in any subject, you will find yourself wanting to improve even more. As the principle of consistency dictates, you don’t want to waste your past efforts, and this will accelerate your learning efficiency.

First, try to feel the joy of discovering small improvements. It will make your progress more enjoyable.

If there is a shortcut, it is to get a proper tutor. I myself had a hard time learning English, but fortunately I found a language partner who became my tutor and helped me correct my mistakes on the spot, which helped me improve a lot.

I encourage everyone to try tutoring.

 
In the beginning, it is advisable to start with simple and small amounts. I understand that you want to learn a lot at once and improve quickly. But that’s enough for today.
 
See you tomorrow for the next lesson.

Hiragana

Japanese has no “tone” at all.

 
 

 

 

ひらがな

The first step to learning Japanese is to learn the alphabet. Or at least to learn the sounds that exist in that language. Like many other Asian languages, Japanese has no “tone” at all. There are only two exceptions to the alphabet, which we will discuss later. The Japanese alphabet does not contain letters, but instead contains letters, which is technically a character set rather than an alphabet. The characters in the table below are called hiragana. Hiragana is the main alphabet or character set in Japanese. There are two other character sets in Japanese. Kanji (Kanji), which will be explained later, and Katakana, which is another alphabet / character set mainly used for foreign languages. Katakana will be explained in Lesson 2. Don’t wait to move on until you’ve learned all the hiragana characters. Learn them as you continue with the other lessons. 
 
There are five vowels in Japanese. Pronounced (a), “ahh”, (i), “eat” pronounced like “e”, (u), “soon” pronounced like “oo”, (e), “elk” Pronounced like “e”, and (o), pronounced “oh”. With the exception of (n), all hiragana characters end with one of these vowels. The only “consonant” that does not resemble English is the Japanese “r”. It is a little “rolled” like a combination of “d”, “r” and “l”. 

日本語を学ぶための最初のステップは、アルファベットを学ぶことです。または、少なくとも、その言語に存在する音を学ぶために。他の多くのアジア言語のように、日本語には「声調」はまったくありません。アルファベットには、後で説明する2つの例外しかありません。日本語のアルファベットには文字は含まれていませんが、代わりに文字が含まれており、技術的にはアルファベットではなく文字セットです。下の表の文字はひらがなと呼ばれています。ひらがなは、日本語の主要なアルファベットまたは文字セットです。日本語には、他に2つの文字セットがあります。後で説明する漢字(漢字)と、主に外国語に使用される別のアルファベット/文字セットのカタカナです。カタカナについてはレッスン2で説明します。ひらがなのすべてのキャラクターを覚えるまで、先に進むのを待たないでください。他のレッスンを続けながら、それらを学びましょう。 

日本語には5つの母音があります。 (a)、「ahh」と発音、(i)、「eat」では「e」のように発音、(u)、「soon」では「oo」のように発音、(e)、「elk」では「e」のように発音、および(o)、「oh」と発音します。 (n)を除いて、すべてのひらがな文字はこれらの母音の1つで終わります。英語に似ていない唯一の「子音」は日本語の「r」です。 「d」、「r」、「l」の組み合わせのように少し「巻かれ」ています。
