Today’s characters are かand カ.
They are pronounced as “ka” – please listen to Lesson 15 podcast and practice.
か is Hiragana and カ is Katakana.
Let’s learn how to write か (3 strokes).
Please take a look at the following picture.
か has 3 strokes – don’t forget the last stroke.
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 カ(2 strokes).
Please look at the picture below.
Do the same practice as you did with か.
カ is very simple to write, plus it looks similar to か.
There, you have already learned 12 characters so far. すごい！（Sugoi!)
Today you will be able to write 4 more words in Japanese, PLUS… one Kanji! (^-^)/
Yes, it looks just like Katakana “カ”.
Please compare: 力(Kanji for power) and カ(Katakana for ka). See?
So I would say, if you have learned Katakana for ka, then you have learned Kanji for power.
Do you remember what we learned last week?
あ ア、い イ、う ウ、え エ、お オ?
Please practice these words along with か and カ.
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!)
