    It's great that you have made a hiragana chart available, but the new Australian Curriculum for Languages expects students to become familiar with script right from Foundation. Therefore teachers try to keep the use of romaji (Japanese words written in English alphabet) to the bare minimum. The resources in this pack are great, but I can't use them in my classroom because they are all in romaji. Can you update to put the Japanese words into hiragana script. More than happy to help with this task if required.

      Hi there Janine, What a great idea. Thanks so much for pointing this out to us. We happen to have a couple of Japanese as a Second Language people at Teach Starter and we will look at our existing resources and make some changes. We really appreciate your offer to help and may ask you for some assistance in proofing the resources when we have finished them. Thank you so much, if there is anything else I can assist you with, please don't hesitate to contact me.

    Could we have a poster with different types of animals in Japanese and English. Also a poster with different adjectives to describe the animals eg. cute - kawaii; scary - kowai, big - ookii, small - chiisai Thanks

    Great idea Liz - I hope these can be changed to Hiragana!

    I'd love to see these resources in Hirgana and not just romanji (the English letters)
