頑張りましょう!Let’s do our best!

We have our helpful computer friend, QUIZBO™, here to read each of the hiragana aloud to you, and you can do your best to identify which character they said! If you’ve been here since the previous lesson, you’ll know that QUIZBO™ is always available to listen to in his mobile form as QUIZBO™ mini; so, no worries if you need to have him repeat something, he’s here to help!

Maybe you’re not quite sure about how each of these are read… But, that’s okay as well! If you’re not quite sure of the matching moji  (文字, characters), you can still guess to study/revise. Or, if you want something a bit more concrete, be sure to visit the Kiki+Koko: Let’s NihonGO!! blog or online site where we have a whole lesson for you on how to read あいうえお! QUIZBO™ is there to help you read as well!

As for this quiz: the overall questions are in the same order each time, but the answers are randomised, so you can always return or refresh to study/revise!

So, without further ado:
