Learning Japanese

Building the vocabulary :

Nihongo o Narau - Learn Japanese


This is the link which has sufficient set of words which can be learn't over the period of time, by regular reading.

If you have already followed, the links for Hiragana and Katakana :

Re: Learning Japanese - THE PRONUNCIATION

THE BASIC VOWELS ARE :

a - pronounced as double a i.e. : 'aa'

i - pronounced as 'e' in english

u - pronounced as 'oo' in loo

e - pronounced as 'a' in english

o - its a normal 'o'


Then comes the consonant series :

Join the letters K, S, T, N, H, M, R to form the letters

For eg:

-> ka (or kaa)
-> ki (or ke)
-> ku (or koo)
-> ke (or kay)
-> ko

and so...on.

Let me know if this is simple enough. So, that we can proceed further..
