The first vowel in Hiragana is あ. Pronounced as "ah". Like the "a" in "car" or in "awful". Underneath is the correct stroke order for when writing it. Stroke order is actually very important! It helps the symbol come out nicer, and Japanese people will comment if you don't write it in the correct order or may not be able to read it at all. Horizontal lines are first and then it goes top to bottom and left to right. It takes a bit of practice but after awhile the stroke order will become like second nature :)
がんばって~! Good luck~!

Thank you @AkiraCondry ^^ I tried. I'll start writing more words in Hiragana as I introduce all of them~ @poojas Okay, I will~ and thank you~ I had wanted to put pictures that would help memorize the symbol, but I couldn't find any good ones, hopefully I'll find some for future cards~! @EllieDean I'm actually planning on going to Japan too! I'll be going to school to study Japanese more :D I'm hoping things go well and I get to go~
