Hiragana (ひらがな)

Learning Japanese is difficult! If you don't know hiragana...

Once upon a time, I decided to learn Japanese. Private teachers were few and far between, and as the school year has already started, most language schools wouldn't accept new students.

I was eager to start learning, and as the Japanese alphabet appeared to be the logical place to start, that's what I dove into.

Next year, I joined a Japanese class of seven students. One month later, there were only three of us left!

Even many weeks into the classes, our teacher hadn’t even introduced hiragana to us, but my prior knowledge of how the language is written made all the initial difficulties far more easy to overcome.

I quickly grasped correct pronunciation, understood complex grammar points, and when the other students were complaining about the lack of simple reading material, I've been enjoying Japanese books.

Learning hiragana will help you far into your studies. If you’ll learn hiragana now, you won’t regret it in the future!

Katakana (カタカナ)

Don't you want to know how to write your name in Japanese?

Many students spend months learning Japanese, but when they finally come to Japan, they can’t even write down their name!

In constant fight to keep as many students as possible, teachers continue to simplify their beginner classes, and katakana is often the first one to fall off the board.

What these teachers don’t tell their students is how not learning katakana will make their lives so much more difficult later on.

Not learning hiragana & katakana in the beginning is one of the main reasons why many stop learning Japanese deep into their studies!

Say yes to real Japanese.

I’ll teach you hiragana and katakana in just two weeks!

That's all well and good, but where do I start?

Learning hiragana and katakana (collectively called ‘kana’) is one of the coolest things that you can do, regardless of whether you want to learn Japanese.

You’ll be able to read aloud T-shirt slogans, menus in Japanese restaurants and even use web pages written in Japanese.

Your Japanese teacher would be so impressed that you can read every word of your first Japanese textbook aloud simply because you’ve learned hiragana.
