Pronounciation, the first 46 sounds.

Ok so the good thing about Japanese is that there is very few actual sounds that you have to pronounce. So below is a little song to help with the these and follow the Hiragana and Katakana lists that I posted yesterday. The tune is very j-pop but is also annoyingly catchy, it does however help you to learn the correct pronunciation!

Below is the lyrics, written in Hiragana with my bracketed comments. This originally comes from which is a useful site I stumbled on, its free and well worth a look with some useful tools too!
