Hiragana / Katakana Master Plan #22

Today’s characters are に and ニ.

They are pronounced as “ni” – please listen to Lesson 17 podcast and practice.

に is Hiragana and ニ is Katakana.

Let’s learn how to write に (3 strokes).
Please take a look at the following picture.

に has 3 strokes. Look at the right side of に – it looks like Hiragana こ, 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 ニ (2 strokes).
Please look at the picture below.

Do the same practice as you did with に.

There, you have already learned 44 characters so far. すごい!(Sugoi!)
Today you will be able to write 4 more words in Japanese … PLUS one Kanji! Wow!

あに=older brother
おに=ogre; demon; it (i.e. in a game of tag)
かに=crab
にく=meat
二=Kanji for “two”

Yes, it looks just like Katakana “ニ”.
Please compare: 二(Kanji for two) and ニ(Katakana for ni). See?
So I would say, if you have learned Katakana for ni, then you have learned Kanji for two.

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!)
If you have any questions, please let me know!
