I have tried many times to understand Hiragana... but I don't get it!

Hello every Japanese speaker,

Please can you teach me the basics of Japanese alphabet? I've tried many times to go through all the letters of that enormous alphabet but... seriously... I don't get it!!!

Help plz!

Forgot to recommend the app I used. I use Dr. Moku. It has the charts as well as quizes to test you. My favorite part is it also has reading so once you test out your reading when you start feeling more comforable or need to test your knowlege

I used phone apps when learning hiragana and katakana. When bored I used it, like a game.

I found this very helpful.

Could you be more specific about your troubles? Are having a hard time memorizing? Speaking the sounds? Writing?

It's not too hard,  all you have to do is Learn about 5 a day and maybe written them down.

The most important part is that you need to use it to memorize it. I memorized hiragana one time then I spent a few weeks away from Japanese, I come back, and I forgot most of the characters.

Well, yes I have troubles in memorizing it! Thank you for the suggestion I will go and try it out tomorrow!
