Japanese Lesson 5: Japanese Phonics 3 長音 and 促音

長音 and 促音

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!

the long sound: 長音(ちょうおん) cho-on

You can express 長音 with this sound mark “ー”.

We frequently use it when the vowels are compounded because of Japanese pronunciation.

Expressions

おかーさん
okaasan
mother
ケーキ
けーき
keeki
cake
コーヒー
こーひー
koohii
coffee

“the double consonant 促音(そくおん)soku -on”.

Soku-on is bouncing sound like a ” get cut put”.

We can express it with small letter “っ”.

Expressions

びっくりする
bikkuri-suru
to be surprised
失敗
しっぱい
shippai
fail
一緒
いっしょ
issho
together
かっこいい
kakkoii
cool

If you want to write with your keyboard, you just press the same key(consonant letter) twice.
