Let’s Study Ta Te Chi To Tsu! たてちとつ 勉強しましょう!

The next line we will be learning is the “t” line in hiragana.

た-(ta) The た sound is made by combining the “t” sound with the “ah” vowel sound. It is similar to the “ta” sound in the name of the island of “Tahiti.”

TA-hiragana

て-(te) The てsound is made by combining the “t” sound with the “eh” vowel sound. It is similar to the “te” sound in the English word “text”.

TE-hiragana

ち-(chi) You maybe asking yourself isn’t this were the “ti” sound is. Well there isn’t one instead the Japanese have the ち sound. To make the ち you combine the “ch” sound with the “ee” vowel sound. It is similar to the “chi” sound in the English word “chip”.

CHI-hiragana

と-(to) To make the と sound you combine “t” sound with the “oh” vowel sound. It is pronounced like the English word “toe”.

TO-hiragana

つ-(tsu) Again the japanese do not have a “tu” hiragana. Instead they use the sound つ. To make this sound you combine the “t” sound with the sound “su”. The only word we use in English that is close to making the つ sound is in the already Japanese word “tsunami”.

TSU-hiragana

That covers the “t” line in hiragana. Please remember to practice!
