Lesson 9:らりるれろ

In this lesson, I will teach you five hiragana, which are らりるれろ.


ら is pronounced as /la/.

TipI love steamy ramen noodles.
ら as in “ramen”.
 
Stroke Order

り is pronounced as /li/.

TipI’ll give Lily a ribbon.
り as in “Lily”.
 
Stroke Order
NoteDepending on the font, some “ri” will be connected while others won’t, you can choose the style you like.

る is pronounced as /lu/.

TipLook at my loop!
る as in “loop”.
 
Stroke Order

れ is pronounced as /le/.

TipLet’s race!
れ as in “Let’s”.
 
Stroke Order

ろ is pronounced as /lo/.

TipLower your body to avoid the rope.
ろ as in “Lower”.
 
Stroke Order

Note:

らりるれろ are pronounced as [la, li, lu, le, lo], but their romaji are [ra, ri, ru, re, ro].
If you want to write them in romaji, be sure to write them as “ra, ri, ru, re, ro”.
And if you want to get the correct answer in the quiz later, you need to type [ra, ri, ru, re, ro].
HiraganaHow to write
り is kind of similar to い in some fonts, be sure to not confuse them.

Below is a video to help you pronounce らりるれろ. Hope it helps!
