Hiragana Page 06 Review One

Oni's picture

Here are the suspects... Can you name them?


What is the Hiragana to the left?

Continue until you are sure of them all


All other Hiragana letters are consonants + a vowel (except n)

Great!! but accent...


Absolutely excellent teaching methods, though my ONE suggestion would be:

With descriptions for the words, such as 'ta' as in 'toddler', it's with an American accent. As I'm Australian (so i guess inadvertently related to British English, [hey, not my fault]), the 'ta' would be more like a 'to'. Does that kinda make sense... (?)

Either way, it's amazing at how you have created this for learning! I'm having SO much fun practicing and learning in such a beautiful and simple way!



IN just 10 minutes , I have learned all this characters. amazing this lesson so i keep going...... thanks a lot for it.. ta ta for now

Never really knew it would be that 'simple'. Well, at least for these 5. I guess the rest will be more difficult. But i'll do my best.

Thanks for the lessons :)

Thanks, it helped alot =D. Im just at the beginning in Hiragana and learned the first
five Hiragana in about half an hour. Thank you =D But i guess its becoming more difficult :).


This is fun... I'm just afraid that no one can understand my writting... lol :))

by the way the ineractive game is fun but every one has their own learning style its best to figure out your style and apply flash cards if you feel so... I'm more of the interactive ones though... TC...

I've finished the whole

I've finished the whole Hiragana section. But in katakana, we don't have these reviews. It's a real shame, they were very good...

one day, you asked me to choose between you and my life, i chose my life, and you went away.
But what you didn't know, is that my life is you

eAsy dOes iT!!!

i`ve studied it before but don`t know the correct strokes, thus i stopped and forgot about it. when i arrived in japan, my workmate asked me to write her name even in hiragana, because she have her hands full at that moment. then, isaid...``i don`t know``. so got this refuelled interest to relearn hiragana...
i also have a question. i have requested for the 3 kanji and 4 kanji a day but i didn`t get any notification e-mail so you guys could verify my e-mail...how can i start the KANJI a day??? HELP please!!!
thanks in advance!!! =) chu!!!

Sorry if i didn`t use the upper case in this comment...
still hoping for reply...

tOo bLessEd tO bE sTresSed!!!
