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

Changing directions a bit. This lesson will deal with grammar and introduce the easiest sentence structure you'll see in Japanese. And here it is:

X は Y です
[X wa Y desu.]

That is the most basic way you can say: "X is Y." Before going further with what you can put in for X and Y there's something important. You see the three kana there, yes? The last...

Lesson 1: hiragana
Lesson 2: katakana

Now that you have hiragana and katakana down, or at least mostly down, there's a little bit of extra to learn about them before moving on.

Lesson 1: hiragana

One nice thing about learning katakana (and there aren't many) is that it is an exact equivalent to hiragana. All the sounds and placements are the same. The only difference is in how it's written. So if you have hiragana down already (which is a good...

Japanese Lessons

Hi, peoples. I thought I would bring back the Japanese lessons I was sort of doing off and on earlier this year, only this time in blog format so that every 'lesson' is nice and contained.

Without really knowing what would be a good place to start (since I can't really know what level anyone is at) I'm falling back on a basic lesson in how to recognize and read Japanese. So today's topic is going to be hiragana.

Hiragana is one of the syllabaries...

Everyone must learn how to do all of these. There will be a test later. Ugh. Now I want to go shopping and buy 25 new scarves.

On a different note, I'm thinking about doing some Japanese lessons like I sort of did in this old thread, but I'm not really sure if there would be much/any interest. If there is interest what would anyone potentially like to see? (Keep in mind that I'm not fluent or anything. I just have lots of resources and have been studying for...
