Handwriting #1

Hiragana ひらがな / Katakana カタカナ

Yesterday I wrote my first Japanese sentences and thought I would share them with you so that you may see how my handwriting is coming along. Below is a sample of a few very simple sentences that I wrote for my friend (ともだち) and unofficial teacher (せんせい), Hiroko (ひろこ). I know that I changed sizes of characters after 2nd sentence as I had misjudged my spacing and adjusted to keep each sentence on one line.

Please leave a comment with your feedback as to help me become better.

Thank you! (ありがとう!)
