In this lesson, I will teach you five hiragana, which are はひふへほ.


は is pronounced as /ha/.

TipI live in a house.
は as in “house”.

Noteは is read as “wa” when it acts as a particle. (Don’t worry, you will learn particle in Particle Course later. )
For example:
わたしは(wa)トムです。I’m Tom.

ひ is pronounced as /hi/.

TipHe is on the wall.
ひ as in “He”.

Stroke Order

ふ is pronounced as /hu/.
(sounds like in the middle of hu and fu.)

ふ as in “Fuji”.

NoteIn quizzes later, you should type “fu” to get the correct answer.

へ is pronounced as /he/.

TipThere is a haystack.
へ as in “haystack”.
