If you’re looking to learn Japanese, hiragana is most likely going to be your first step. With hiragana, you open the doors to so many other Japanese learning resources that aren’t possible to use without it. Plus, hiragana gives you insight into Japanese pronunciation and grammar. You just can’t get any of this with romaji alone.
This particular ebook teaches hiragana using mnemonics and practice exercises. Kanji is too complicated to use pictures as mnemonic devices – hiragana on the other hand is simple so you can get away with it. These images will help you to keep the memory of the hiragana character in your head just long enough to get to the exercises, where you’ll solidify that memory and then make it natural. If you follow every step in this ebook you’ll be able to read hiragana in a very short amount of time. You’ll still need to continue practicing (but you’ll get a lot of that while you’re learning Japanese), but you’ll be amazed at how quickly you’ll learn these.
If you haven’t learned all your hiragana or your hiragana is super shaky, give this ebook a try! I mean, it’s free, after all.
