「にほんごをいっしょにはじめましょう!」

= Nihongo wo issho ni hajimemashou!

= Let’s start Japanese with me!

Hi, everyone! Welcome to Maggie Sensei’s hiragana chart. There are already tons of sites with hiragana and katakana charts out there so this is just a simple hiragana one for

newbies who still need help reading and practicing hiranaga.

 

Many people say Japanese is very difficult to read and write, and that is true. But if you start learning now, you will be able to understand the

language in a couple of years.  Let’s start right now!

We mix kanji with hiragana to write native Japanese words.

Please take your time and learn  how to read them. Once you learn, you can start practicing your reading.
