Katakana-MA MI MU ME MO

In the last lesson we went over ハヒフヘホ — a lesson with a unique character to watch out for. The M consonant is back to simple.

MA MI MU ME MO-マ三ムメモ

  • → ma (like “ma”)
  • → mi (like “me”)
  • → mu (like “moo”)
  • → me (like “May”)
  • → mo (like “Moe”)

Look Out For マ-ム

(ma) and (mu) aren’t super similar, but for some reason I kept getting them backwards when I was learning katakana.

Recall Practice

Time to practice! Just like in all lessons, do this as many times as it takes for you to feel like you can confidently select the correct answer without guessing.

This recall brings back タチツテト to combine with マ三ムメモ.

Good job! Continue practicing until you can confidently identify each character with ease. Click the buttons below to restart the practice (challenge yourself with inverted and challenge mode).

Once this practice feels easy to you it’s time to take a break and then move on to the next lesson.
