Hiragana 1 is the 1st skill in the Japanese language tree. It has 5 lessons in which you learn basic hiragana and words with those characters.

Tips and Notes[edit | edit source]

You can also practice Hiragana on Tinycards.

In this skill you will learn 15 Hiragana characters and use them to learn 11 simple words.

In the transliterations, if you see a letter with a mark above it, for example the "ō" in "ohayō", that means the letter is elongated, so the vowel is pronounced like a double letter so it becomes "ohayoo".

The Kanji word for six has been included because it was shown in the tips and notes for "six". Kanji is the Chinese character for Japanese words. In this case, the Kanji for six is 六 and the Hiragana is ろく.
