Welcome to my Japanese for Absolute Beginners 1 | Hiragana class
This class is for absolute beginner Japanese learners, and anyone learning Japanese for the first time must begin with learning Hiragana, one of three writing systems in Japanese.
The main aim of this class is to help you develop mastery of Hiragana, and because of this aim of developing mastery, this class is designed to be interactive. Each lesson contains speaking practices which force you to read the hiragana characters, and constant repetition and recalling will help you to remember the hiragana characters you are learning.
As well as learning how to read the characters and pronounce the characters, we also want you to develop skills in writing Hiragana characters. As such, our lessons contains video clips showing you how to write each character. Additionally, there are writing worksheets, so you can practice writing the letters you are learning, further helping you to develop mastery of Hiragana.
We plan to expand this course in the future. Therefore, as well as learning Hiragana characters, we will also add lessons to teach Katakana and also teach conversation skills in Japanese.
We hope you are excited to learn Hiragana and we look forward to seeing you in our lessons

My name's Keehwan Kim and welcome to my teacher profile page.
I have been a language teaching professional since 2005, teaching mainly English to Korean learners, but also teaching Korean to English speakers.
I have been creating online courses on and off since 2016, but since 2019, I have moved away from classroom teaching and have been creating Korean language courses.
I love everything about teaching and learning languages. I think best analogy of language learning is of trying to go up an escalator that's coming down. You have to work hard to make forward progress, and if you stop trying, it's easy to lose all that progress you have made.
Many of us live in environments where interacting with the language you're learning is extremely difficult, but I hope my courses help you to engage with Korean and help you to make forward progress towards your language learning goals.
