This is the event for a person who want to learn Japanese from scratch. If you think "I want to travel to Japan some day, I want to enjoy more of manga, anime and J drama in Japanese." just come join us.
the lesson of today it is KA KI KU KE KO.
learn how to pronounce, write KANA and check the words.
instead of the alphabet, Japanese uses KANA. There are two kinds of KANA-
" HIRAGANA" and "KATAKANA".
HIRAGANA is used for the traditional sound of Japanese. KATAKANA is used for words that were borrowed from other languages.
Both kana sets are what you use when you first learn Japanese.
Knowing these are really important to learn and speak Japanese.
Japanese is a phonetic language. if you study KANA it's much easier to speak Japanese.
Now let's begin practicing.
