  1. I would adjust your description for あ (あ as in “antenna”). The sound a makes in the word “antenna” in English /æ/ does not match the sound of あ in Japanese /a/. I would find a better example word so learners aren’t confused.

  2. Ok now I have to memorize all of these and get them in my mind before I got the next lesson, right? Or can I just move on. and man… this Is easier than I thought lol. Thank you.

  3. Hey man,

    Is there a suggested time scale to the lesson plan in terms of where you should aim to be by a certain point (hours invested etc). I’m struggling just with the alphabet, haha.

    Thanks.
