Today’s characters are ら and ラ.
They are pronounced as “ra” – I will record the pronunciation in our next lesson.
ら is Hiragana and ラ is Katakana.
Let’s learn how to write ら (2 strokes).
Please take a look at the following picture.
ら has 2 strokes.
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 ラ (2 strokes, too).
Please look at the picture below.
Do the same practice as you did with ら.
There, you have already learned 78 characters so far. すごい！Sugoi!
Today you will be able to write 16 more words in Japanese. Wow!
けらい＝retainer; retinue; servant
はら＝abdomen; belly; stomach
ミラノ＝Milano or Milan
やらせ＝(1) faked situation; (2) prearranged performances
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!)
