Japanese is a really difficult language. Because there are far more kinds of characters used in Japanese language compared to English. I can't remember such a thing lol
Hi Tina! You're right, Japanese has a lot of characters. In English, there aren't even 30 types at most. Japanese language is known to have more than 3,000 different characters, so it may be the most difficult part of learning Japanese.
It's true. I guess I have to learn the letters first, but I don't know where to start at all.
I see. Actually, the Japanese characters can be divided into three patterns. They are Hiragana, Katakana and Kanji.
I see. Which one should I start with?
Yeah. Let's learn hiragana first. The Japanese also learn hiragana for the first time. And once you master Hiragana, you can basically write most Japanese sentences.
Really? If I learnHhiragana, will I be able to write Japanese too? By the way, how many characters of Hiragana are there?
Look at this table. There are 46 kinds of characters in Hirakana.
Wow. It's going to be hard to remember.
I think it's hard at first, but let's do our best to learn it.
Next time, let's study how to write and pronounce Hiragana with the table! !
That's all for today's lesson. Thank you for your hard work.
