Japanese Lessons: Part 5½

Lesson 1: hiragana
Lesson 2: katakana
Lesson 3: more kana

Lesson 4: grammar intro

Lesson 5: kanji



If you saw my last blog lesson you'd have seen a whole bunch of kanji on it, most of which I didn't bother to identify. I'm doing that now. I've got all 79 of them here with pronunciation guides in both kana and romaji, and basic glosses.


This is just a followup post in case you want to do some extra studying. A more real lesson will come later.
But these are good ones to go over a couple of times since some of them you'll be seeing a lot of when you get to reading Japanese.

    Gah! So many kanji, and this is just the tip of the iceberg! Still, if I can learn these, then that's definite step in the right direction.
