In the last lesson, we went over アイウエオ — the core vowel sounds. The Japanese language consists of simply adding consonants to these core sounds.
Let’s start with K first.
KA KI KU KE KO-カキクケコ
If you’ve studied hiragana already then you’ll notice the katakana カ is super similar to the か in hiragana – lucky! It looks like a sharper, more squared version.
Look Out For ク-ケ
It’s pretty easy to see the difference between ク (ku) and ケ (ke) when you’re looking closely at them in a typed format like this. But they will deceive you sometimes when trying to read them on signs/menus.
