Japan is a beautiful country with a unique and original culture. Each Japanese city reflects a different side of Japan, whether you want the crowded city of Tokyo filled with skyscrapers and pop culture, or the quieter Kyoto famous for its many Buddhist temples, gardens and Imperial Palaces.
Sensei Online will teach you how to say many useful Japanese phrases such as saying your name, age, family members, etc. It will also teach you about Japanese culture and customs you will need to know if you ever visit Japan, and links to other Japanese websites are at the bottom of this page. Also on this page is a hiragana chart (hiragana is one of the three scripts used in Japan) and a basic guide to pronunciation.
, SECOND ONE
There are ?? different hiragana characters as well as ?? blended sounds (blended sounds are made of two characters but the sound is blended together). Japanese pronunciation is very easy because there are five vowel sounds that never change, unlike English where vowels can be said many different ways.
a: The sound ‘a’ is said like the ‘a’ in the English word ‘ark’, not like ‘a’ in the English word ‘lap’.
e: This sound is pronounced how we say the ‘e’ in ‘let’, not like the ‘e’ in ‘me’.
i: ‘i’ is said how we pronounce the ‘e’ in ‘me’ or the ‘i’ in ‘Hawaii’. ‘i’ is not pronounced how we would normally say ‘I am going to the shops.’
o: This sound is said like how we say the ‘o’ sound in ‘dog’. It is not pronounced ‘oh’ (like in ‘ogre’).
u: This sound is pronounced ‘ooh’ (like in ‘moo’) but be careful not to add a ‘y’ at the start (like in ‘unicorn’) or pronounce it ‘uh’ (like in ‘luck’).
All hiragana symbols include one of these vowel sounds and all the consonants are the same as English ones, apart from ‘r’ which is a mix between a ‘d’ and a ‘l’.
You are probably thinking ‘How will I ever remember 72 different symbols?’. As you can see on the chart, some of the characters are the same but because they have a little symbol in the top right they represent a different sound. There are two different symbols; a tenten and a maru. A tenten is two small lines and a maru is a circle. You still have to make sure you are putting a maru or tenten on the right character because otherwise it won’t represent a sound at all!

You can use the chart to help you read some Japanese words or play hiragana-learning games. Here are some links to games where you can improve your knowledge.
