Just a few quick explanations before I get started.
For this tutorial I will only be using 'romaji' which is basically the Latin letter equivalent to the Japanese language. I know there are people who don't have the language pack installed, so I want to keep it fair for them too. However, if you would like me to include both kana (hiragana, katakana, kanji) as well as romaji, just comment on here letting me know, I'll be more than happy to do both if it's wanted.
I cannot do the studying for you. If you desire to learn the language, I'll be more than happy to study /with/ you, but you'll have to do the memorization on your own. Even if you don't have the language pack installed, I highly recommend learning the alphabets and kanji.
Okie dokie, time to start with the basics.
How to pronounce words and syllables in Japanese. I'll get more into the alphabets later, for now, let's learn how to say them.
The "a" as in "father"
The "i" as in "machine"
