In this course, interactive teaching materials will help you learn hiragana as you read and type single sounds as well as easy words. Materials on how to write are also available for those who want to learn handwriting.

If you are interested in Japanese writing, or find it difficult to learn all the katakana, why not use this course to study katakana?
