Welcome to JapanesePod101.com's Kantan Kana. In this series, you will learn the Japanese writing systems known as Kana. Japanese has three writing systems: Hiragana, Katakana and Kanji. This series, we will learn both Hiragana and Katakana, collectively known as Kana. Over 25 lessons we will teach you Kana using simple steps, showing stroke order, tricks for memorization, and usage in common Japanese words. If you want to get started reading and writing Japanese, this is THE place to start. So join us for Kantan Kana from JapanesePod101.com.
In our fourth lesson, we move on to the fourth group of hiragana characters, た、ち、つ、て、and と and we'll teach you a few words you can write with these characters. Are you ready to learn more Japanese characters?

Learning japanese is a lot harder because of the different characters. I personnaly think the alphabet i'm using right now is the easiest to learn, write, use, etc. It just feels so simple. 26 letters, each having/meaning a sound. I am going to learn Japanese, and this is one of the most difficult parts of learning it. Not forgetting that Kanji thing wich breaks my heart.

I've noticed that the words that you write mostly written vertically but from how I usually see it, it's written horizontally. Is there a reason for that ?

Hello, you are really amazing, your approach is really good and you manage to transform something that is not quite easy to look like a person can actually correspond with. Thank you for make it that way and thank you for making the effort with the lessons.

You can't mix hiragana with katakana idiot! たこの, is hiragana and the rest is something else. You should no by now that you can't mix the two, dumbass!

what is the difference between "shi" and "chi?
Learn Japanese with JapanesePod101.com
Hi MIS GAMERS, Thank you for posting. し(shi) is in さ-column(さしすせそ) and ち is in た-column(たちつてと). These are completely defferent consonants from each other. Hope this helps you. Keep studying with JapanesePod101.com Regards, Miki Team JapanesePod101.com

Is Japanese left to right or top to bottom with words?
Lola Lane
Lola Lane 2 years ago
Both, you right the words up to down from right to left, but some people write left to right instead of up to down, but up to down is the correct way, Remember Japanese read up to down, right to left.
