Reinforcement is another key to language learning

I have made up my mind to study Japanese but I kept forgetting the 50 basic hiragana sounds. For the last few minutes, I have been writing them out again and again. I still do now. I find that reinforcement in this helps. At least, I am able to write most of the 50 sounds from 'a i u e o' until 'wa o n'

Besides I learn Japanese online too as I get to listen to the correct pronunciation by native speakers. One freeware I have installed in my pocket PC helps me to remember hiragana too. It is something like a quiz where the computer shows the letter and you press the right sound to match it. All these boil down to reinforcement.

Hence reinforcement is another key to language learning.
