Hiragana Page 59 Small Tsu

This part is a little different... Take it slow and you should be able to catch on


One more thing... You have learned tsu - But sometimes it appears smaller than other letters. This causes a slight pause or break between syllables.

Example: chotto (which means 'a little') pronounced "cho - to" with a slight break between syllables. In romaji it is usually written by repeating the next consonant as with 'choTTo.'

Example: zasshi (magazine) pronounced "za - shi"

Homework : Try to find some other examples on the internet of the small tsu
