You will read and write Hiragana & Katakana to learn Japanese topic-related vocabulary, language and culture information as short passages as well as useful and daily expressions. The grammatical concepts are explained in English in order for you to fully understand, and also Kanji characters and words will be introduced as soon as you are used to read and write Hiragana & Katakana.
