After 46 basic syllables studied, you have acquired a definite habit of writing hiragana. Did you know that the stroke order is important in Japanese writing, even though it was not the case before. It is why when you write kana it is essential to follow the order of the strokes. This always allows you to write a readable and correct kana. In this stay, we will see the letter -s- with two strokes. These syllables are pronounced with -z-. Except for the -zi-, which is pronounced -ji-.
Look carefully at all characters used to transcribe the Japanese syllabary. Find on this table on top the Japanese Hiragana and at the bottom the romanized version in the English alphabet.
Tips: Go left to right and right to left, trying to memorize each character. Close your eyes and try to visualize the characters in your head.Play by hovering over the kana with your mouse (or touch on your phone) the kana to see the transliteration.
Now take a sheet of paper and practice writing each Hiragana below several times. Observe the order of the strokes to be able to draw the characters correctly. The color blue indicates the first stroke, pink the second stroke, green the third stroke, and yellow/brown for the last stroke.
Let's move on to practice with these different words to read. Read all the Hiragana and check your answers below. Do the same exercise again another day to consolidate your memorize.
Your learning day is over. Come back tomorrow or continue with a new day.
