JAPANESE LESSON

Japanese Lesson 3: Japanese Phonics 1 濁音

Hi, I’m ojachan 🙂

I was a cram school teacher in Japan. I taught Japanese from elementary to junior high school students. Don’t you want to know how to learn Japanese like Japanese kids? I’ll teach you who start from beginner’s level Japanese.

Let’s get started!

Today’s lesson is; Japanese phonics 1 “濁音(だくおん)”

Have you ever seen the letter like “が ど で” ?

The double dots of the upper right side is called “daku-on”.

濁音 だくおん

か行、さ行、た行、は行 only become 濁音(だくおん) in Hiragana.

か行 k- → g- 
が ぎ ぐ げ ご
ga gi gu ge go 
さ行 s- → z- 
ざ じ ず ぜ ぞ
za *zi(ji) zu ze zo
た行 t- → d- 
だ ぢ づ で ど
da *di(ji) *du(zu) de do
は行 h- → b-
ば び ぶ べ ぼ
ba bi bu be bo 

* I write in “日本式nihon-Shiki” basically because it’s easier understanding than “ヘボン式 hebon-shiki ( it’s regular Roman characters)”.

Vocabulary Words

*For mobile phone users → sorry, I think you can check these tables clearly from your PC or Tablet.
