Breaking down the language barrier one class at a time

Hiragana is a set of symbols that makes up one basic component of the Japanese writing system, along with katakana, kanji and romaji. The class is three sessions long and can be taken by any base member after completion of the Survival Japanese class. (U.S. Air Force photo by Airman 1st Class Kia Atkins/Released)
