I can read Hiragana perfectly. (Though, Im still a bit slow at certain ones...)
Katakana... I still havent fully memorized much of it...
And Kanji.... I DONT GET AT ALL.

Seriously.

Why does one kanji have so many meanings? Its crazy! It is seriously hard to get....

ANYWAYS! (LOL)


What is Furigana?

Is that the Hiragana that sometimes appears over Kanji?

Furigana (振り仮名?) is a Japanese reading aid, consisting of smaller kana printed next to a kanji or other character to indicate its pronunciation. In horizontal text, yokogaki, they are placed above the line of text, while in vertical text, tategaki, they are placed to the right of the line of text, as illustrated below. They are one type of ruby text. Furigana are also known as yomigana (読み仮名?) or rubi (ルビ?) in Japanese.

I've known the "three alphabet" things, but if I don't know much kanji yet (or i'm not sure), is it okay to just write everything in hiragana?? (or katakana, as appropriate) I know like if I used the word "kami" the homophone, it would be confusing if I wrote it in hiragana as opposed to regular kanji which would be faster. But when you write Japanese, im pretty sure you use a mix of hiragana and kanji, so would it be strange if I eliminated all the kanji??
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
And, I was wondering, for instance if you wrote a word in all hiragana, you could sound out the different syllables and figure out what it meant. Does this apply to kanji? Or do I have to memorize every little character??
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Thank you muchs ^^ Your lessons are helping me a lot

that's because they read it differently chimpanz3e it's almost like english spanish and french spellings and how they say. I guess they do it the same way.

By the way, I love this! I think I understand a little, just a teeny tiny bit. I learn how to write the Alphabet first and got used to what it means and now I will move forward.

Perhaps it would be easier for Chinese to understand it.

sunwooz~ can you send me some starters guide something of like that? reading romaji might do first then only start to learn kanji would be better. that's my way of learning.
