Today’s characters are え and エ.
え is Hiragana and エ is Katakana.
Let’s learn how to write え (2 strokes).
Please take a look at the following picture.
え has only 2 strokes – looks like it has more, doesn’t it?
Please get a piece of paper and start practicing!
Look at my writing carefully and copy it. Write it till your hand remembers how to write it.
Ok, now let’s move on to エ (3 strokes).
Please look at the picture below.
Do the same practice as you did with え.
エ looks like “sleeping letter H”, don’t you agree? (^-^)
There, you have already learned 8 characters so far. すごい！（Sugoi!)
Today you will be able to write 2 more words in Japanese.
いえ = house
うえ= above; over; on top of; up; upper part; summit; surface; far better; higher
Please practice these words along with あい when you have time.
You guys are doing a great job!
That’s it for today’s lesson. Please practice writing these 2 characters till your hand absolutely remembers them. がんばってね！（Ganbatte ne!)
