Hi all, im new on this forum. So i was trying to learn a new kanji. Cross, ten, jew. The problem is: when I write the reading i use this kana: ji yu u. Am i wrong? Because im using the same kana write in the lecture but the sistem say im wrong
if you are typing it as ji yu u it comes out as じゆう instead of じゅう (jyuu) which you actually want. Notice the smaller ゆ? that makes all the difference you can also get it by typing x yu, but that’s more work than you actually have to put in.
From the FAQ:
Why is my reading answer for 入 (にゅう), 上 (じょう), 九 (きゅう), 力 (りょく), 十 (じゅう), or 女 (じょ) being marked incorrect? I’m putting in the right answer!
Most likely, you are putting in a big や, ゆ, or よ instead of a small one. See the difference?
じよう = jiyou
じょう = jyou
きゆう = kiyuu
きゅう = kyuu
りよく = riyoku
りょく = ryoku
じゆう = jiyuu
じゅう = jyuu
じよ = jiyo
じょ = jyo
The difference is big, and it’s important to get these correct. For example, じゆう means “freedom,” so if you wrote that instead of じゅう, you would be saying something completely different.
You are right guys, i haven’t see the small character! Thank you for the help!
