Nice answer to 2! Yes, it's normally written in kanji but we haven't got that far yet!

The next 5 characters are associated with the consonant 'n' followed by each vowel in turn.
So today's characters are:
(hiragana) and (katakana): say "na".
We write them like this.

Today we have the characters:
(hiragana) and (katakana): say "no" (with a short 'o').
We write them like this.

This completes the characters associated with the consonant 'n':
なにぬねの and ナニヌネノ: na ni nu ne no.

The following set of 5 characters give the consonant 'h' followed by each vowel in turn.
Thus today's characters give the sound "ha":
(hiragana) and (katakana): say "ha".
We write them like this.

Today's characters are:
(hiragana) and (katakana): say "fu" (but see below).
We write them like this.

In our letters, this sound is usually written as "fu" instead of "hu", but the Japanese sound is
not quite the same as either English sound. Here are 2 tips which may help you.

Firstly, the Japanese 'f' sound is like the English 'f' but without involving your teeth.
Try positioning your mouth ready to say 'p' and then blowing air instead.
Then compare this with how you say the English 'f'.

Secondly, with all these Japanese consonant+vowel combinations, we position the tongue
ready to pronounce the vowel first and then say both consonant & vowel from that position.
In this way, 'h' before 'u' naturally sounds more like the Japanese 'f'.

Here is a videoclip with all 5 vowels: ha hi fu/hu he ho:

An easy one today:
(hiragana) and (katakana): say "he" (with a short 'e').
We write them like this.
Unicode gives them distinct code points but they are visually identical.

This completes the characters associated with the consonant 'h'.
