Learn Katakana-NA NI NU NE NO

In the last lesson, we went over タチツテト. Let’s add the N consonant to your katakana toolkit next.

This is a very simple lesson, with one small tricky thing to look out for.

NA NI NU NE NO-ナ二ヌネノ

First, let’s cover how to pronounce these characters. You can tap each character to hear the native pronunciation.

  • → na (like “nah”)
  • → ni (like “knee”)
  • → nu (like “new”)
  • → ne (like “nay”)
  • → no (like “no”)

Look Out For ノ

This isn’t really all that bad, but (no) looks a bit similar to (tsu) (shi) (so). But since it’s missing the “apostrophe looking thing” it’s easy to remember.

Later in this course, there will be another character added to this list of lookalikes though.
