So you want to learn Japanese, and you've probably heard that the very first step that you need to take to learn Japanese is to learn here.
I gotta and cut by kind of the 1st 2 of three Japanese writing systems.
Yeah, you heard right s Oh, Yoko, you're not gonna handcuff, like, on on which, in this video I will be refering to both together simply as Khanna are the two Japanese syllable alphabets, or cilla Berries, meaning that every single Canada is one sold.
Both here are gonna and come back.
And I come from an old Japanese writing system called Manual Ghana, which was a way of writing Japanese entirely in Chinese characters with the characters representing the fanatic sound of Japanese syllables.
So you know how each gonna is fairly simple, right?
Imagine instead of this here are gonna using this character or instead of this Kata cannot using this character as you can get.
This writing system was pretty chaotic since, for example, the syllable got could be represented by any of these characters.
So that's how can I was brought upon this world making it way easier for us Japanese learners and Japanese people.
I mean, at least from the start, because later on, you will still need to learn a lot of characters, even though they're used in a slightly different way today.
Now, both kind of have 47 syllables each.
You could basically look at it as if there were always two ways of writing the same syllable because, as you know, I gotta starts with all cocky.
So that was the point of having 47 syllables for each of these kind us when both systems sound exactly the same.
Well, that's because each of them has a different usage here.
Organize, used when you're writing actual Japanese words later combined with characters.
So, for example, the Japanese verb to eat How bitter is written in here.
But when you're writing lower words or words that came to Japanese from other languages, you write them in, come back on a like, for example, computer.
The same goes for transcribing for names to Japanese.
So, for example, my nickname Raffi would be written.
There are some exceptions, like, for example, some expressions of feelings and sounds or, for example, plant species, which nobody knows how to write the all the characters, but these are the two main uses of Cut back on.
Now that you need to know.
Now, how do you learn this?
How do you learn?
47 times two, uh, dance 94 syllables.
I graduated from high school.
Don't I haven't done math months.
How do you just learn 94 syllables, just like just like that?
Especially if Japanese is the first foreign language that you're actually interested in learning.
I'll mention a couple of study methods because everybody learns in a different way so you can pick the one that seems like it would made the most sense to you personally.
The method that I used was that I made flashcards with both feet are gonna and cut back on a where on one side there was the gonna And on the other, the pronunciation.
So, yeah, you can look up a con a chart and just make your own flashcards and learn it like that.
But, Raffi there so many here are gonna charge on the internet.
Some of them have even more than 47 characters, some of them less.
How do I know which to choose?
Don't worry.
For that I have made my own chart with both here are gonna and cut that kind of as well as the pronunciation.
So you can just go to the description and download it there for free.
You know, just just just like that, Just like that, With the flashcards method, I was able to learn come out within a week, I think maybe two weeks and Max, and that's I wasn't even studying very often.
I would always just put all the flash currents on my table simultaneously and make a memory game out of it.
Every time I'd get one.
Correct, I'd put it on the side, and every time I didn't know one, I'd flip it to remind myself off what the pronunciation is and then leave it on the table until the next try to see if I remember it.
A lot of people like to make mnemonics to help them remember every individual can.
So, for example, the heat are gonna heat.
You can imagine a guy with the big nose and you'll say he has a big nose or you'll see the cap back on a key and think that kind of looks like a key.
There's a lot of the money charts on the Internet, so you can just follow those.
But also don't be afraid to make your own No Monix and associations that sometimes wouldn't even make sense to other people.
The more personal you make it, the more easily you'll remember.
It doesn't matter how absurd or weird the new Monix get.
The important thing is that they work for you.
And if they work, then that's all that matters from my perspective.
For example, the hit I Got You looks like a fish, and in Chinese you means fish.
So now I can remember that this is gonna is pronounced you because it looks like a fish.
Even though this pneumonic wouldn't make sense to people that don't speak Chinese.
I do want to emphasize that these methods will only practice your visual memory so you'll be able to read.
Therefore, if you want to get better at writing it, to combine these methods with also just getting a notebook and practice writing individual Khanna breakfast writing words.
Gradually, you'll become faster and faster at writing and won't have to stop to think about every single syllable.
What I wouldn't really recommend, though, is relying on little Maggie.
But imagine is basically the transcription off gonna into the Roman alphabet.
Would you get, of course, use at the start as a reference or a helping hand?
But you shouldn't really rely on the actual sound or take it as the exact pronunciation.
This is especially important for people whose mother tongues phonetics are not similar to Japanese.
So, for example, English speakers because relying on the Monte to give you an example having trumpeted written above this word, can result in you ending up saying to Beirut instead of clearly pronouncing it not bit.
Do they do to demonstrated even more blankly marker Rama, notably Monsoon instead off market abdominal problems, which then, even if you wear full and can make your Japanese sound not really legit, so instead try to focus on listening to the pronunciation, remembering the sound itself and associating it with the kinda rather than relying on a dome achy all the time.
I've linked a video in the description that should help you with that, too, so you can just click on it.
They're also usually people learn heat are gonna first and then come back kind of second, Which makes sense, since in your Japanese learning journey, you're mostly make use of it are gonna not so much of God like I know what I'm trying to say is that after you learn here, I get out.
Maybe it's gonna feel like learning.
Capitana is going a bit slower.
Maybe that it's harder to memorize all the shapes.
So my advice is to start learning complicated by memorizing how to write your name and your surname.
That's probably one of the most important things that you'll ever write in Catholic Channel, so we can start with something that important to you and then maybe adding other stuff.
That is, of course, if you have troubles with remembering Couple Kinda has a whole now so special.
Raffi Tips for the end of this video.
The sound in Japanese isn't necessarily food as we know it in English, for example, it's not really about pronouncing the letter F liking.
For example, kung fu.
It's more light, almost like letting the air do the F zone so more like hoo hoo.
That's why who is in the hot heat?
Who whole Siri's?
Because it's more of 1/2 half, half age sound The syllable so in here are gonna Sometimes it's written this way.
Sometimes is written this way.
Some people just prefer like that.
It absolutely doesn't change the pronunciation.
It's completely the same.
You can pick whichever one you like more.
It doesn't really matter.
The differences between and so in Catholic Ana are really subtle also.
And she is sometimes confused.
Uh, here you can see the stroke order.
This is wife stroke Order is important.
Maybe it will help you recognize those characters ducked in and mother are Japanese dia critic marks that can change these syllables like so, um yeah, interest just die critic marks.
I didn't really know what else to say it, but it adding a little too after it kind of means that you should kind of take a beat before saying the following syllable.
It kind of feels like a little jump in the word.
For example, the word which means the day after tomorrow which without the little to with sound like I thought that So do you hear the difference?
I saw that I thought that I thought that in here I got If you want to make one syllable longer.
Like, for example, in the word could a she, which means painful here, The syllable she is prolonged by the following syllable eat.
So it's not Kushi, but could a she or in the word arigato you problem the with.
And so it's no big toe, but variable Now, sometimes I never The Japanese people don't write the because of Internet slang, But trust me that the correct way is with but I wanted to say, is that in capitano you prolong the syllable in a different way.
You something called Trump, which is a straight vertical line.
So, for example, the word Dahlman to indicate the long dot sound You don't write it like this, but like this Dominant, uh, you just used the vertical line instead of the up.
And yeah, I think that's about it.
For today's with you.
I tried to include as many things that I know would help me when I started learning Japanese.
So hopefully some of them were helpful to you, too.
Even if you already know what you are gonna be sure to leave like on this video and let me know in the comments, what's your biggest problem or issue when you were learning here are gonna I'll try to answer some of your guys Commons.
If I find something that I didn't explain in this video you get if only in Twitter, instagram and twist on TV.
And yeah, I guess I'll see you in my next next video.
Or, uh, we're in one of my tweet streams.
Maybe so.
Bye, guys.
E have made my own chart with both here are gonna and Catholic Ana as well as the pronunciation.
