Here is where we begin
What is Hiragana? ~~Hiragana is the alphabet of Japanese. Hiragana is all of the sounds in Japanese. The writing system also has katakana, romaji, and kanji. These writing systems are learned after you get the hiragana system down! The hiragana chart summarizes the writing and pronunciation of the language. We read Japanese top to bottom right to left:) These are rows top to bottom right to left. So each rows has five letters. The first right row is considered the vowels. They are pronounced a, i, u, e, o. This is the base of the hiragana. As you move to left rows, we add consonants to each rows to the left. from right to left you add k, s, t, n, h, m, y, r, w, and the last letter is 'nn'. To remember the order of the rows it will be helpful to remember the first letters of the rows. For example a, ka, sa, ta, na ha, ma, ya, ra, 'wa, wo, nn'. pronounce the last 'wa, wo, nn' for rhythm. So then just add the rest of the rows up to down to this. You will remember the order of the rows in no time! There are some exceptions to this rules though. For example the second letter in the 'ta' row is 'chi', and does not have 't'. Let`s put it all together. . So, the first letters of the rows are a, ka, sa, ta, na, ha, ma, ya, ra, and wa. Then just add a, i, u, e, o to the consonance of the rows. So, the ka row will be ka, ki, ku, ke, ko:) You`ve got this!
