Learning Hiragana and Katakana is a systematic and comprehensive Japanese workbook that can be used along with a Japanese language textbook or as a stand-alone resource to learn the Japanese alphabet ( kana ). Written Japanese combines three different types of characters: the Chinese characters known as kanji, and two Japanese sets of phonetic letters, hiragana and katakana, known collectively as kana, that must be mastered before the Japanese kanji can be learned. This best-selling book since 1990, is a favorite tool of students and teachers worldwide.
