Hiragana  1 .png

   Silent movement

   Listen to my           calligraphy..


   Escape from
  your busy world,

sit and
  clear your mind.

How important
  the moment is.

Hiragana is a Japanese syllabary, one component of the Japanese writing system. The modern hiragana syllabary consists of 46 base characters grid If you remember all the hiragana, you will be able to read and write the names of things in the hiragana. For the first two classes, we will learn Hiragana あ line (あいうえお) and the words that use it. such as ( あい/love、いえ/house、うえ/on,over, あお/blue etc) then for the next 2 classes, we will learnかline(かきくけこ) such as (かき/oyster, Persimmon,あか/Red、きく/to listen, Chrysanthemum、けいこ/training etc) Let’s memorize as many Japanese words as possible J (If you learn hiragana on your own, be careful of the hiragana in the printed matter. (Books, letters on PCs, newspapers) They look a little bit different.
