Continued: Learn Japanese for free (PART-I)

The Hiragana Script

In this, each vowel is preceded by a consonant.[​IMG]

So as you can see from the chart above,

The word hiragana can be written as : ひ ら が な 😛

Good start Ankita.

Just a few points from me..

Japanese is kind of weird. At least, I feel so.

In hiragana, note the difference between "su" and "tsu" (3rd and 4th rows);

Also, note that in 4th row, after tha, you have "chi". You dont have "thi".

Japanese also doesn't have many other sounds. Particularly, we don't have "thi". We don't have "L". Any sound involving "L" is pronounced as "R" or something like that.
So, 'La' is pronounced as 'Ra' and so on..

Happy learning Japanese!! 😀

oh, Quite a number of Japanese people here.. Good!!

However, I feel that words are a bit too much now. Let us first do the basic alphabets..

But still, one from my side..

Hajime Mashite: Greetings that a person says when he meets another person for the first time.
