Learning Japanese may seem like an impossible task but with Dr. Moku you will be amazed at your ability to learn and recall.

The Japanese written language is comprised of three different writing systems: Hiragana, Katakana and Kanji. Hiragana and Katakana are both referred to as the Kana symbols.

Katakana is used mainly to write foreign words that have made their way into Japanese.

Hiragana is used to write native Japanese words or to spell words or part of words that don’t have their own Kanji symbol. Kanji symbols are the busy looking characters derived from Chinese.

Hiragana and Katakana each consist of 46 basic symbols which can be modified slightly to cover every syllable you need.

In general, words spelled with Katakana are derived from foreign words (not always English) which is a great help to the student of Japanese because once you are familiar with the pronunciation, you can make a good guess at how thousands of words are said in Japanese.
