Katakana-WA WO

In the last lesson, we went over ヤユヨ — a simple lesson without anything to trick you. The W consonant is even easier because there are only two of them.

WA WO-ワヲ

  • → wa (like “wa“)
  • → wo (like “whoa”)

Look out for ワ-ヲ-フ-ウ

I told you katakana can be crazy. I merely want to point these characters out to you. This recall practice won’t target these specifically, but the boot camp at the end will help.

When you start reading these during your adventures in Japan, you’ll understand why these are extra difficult (but don’t get discouraged, it’s not that bad).

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 マ三ムメモ to combine with ワヲ.

Good job! Continue practicing until you can confidently complete this with ease. Use 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 quick break and then move on to the next lesson.
