I know katakana and hiragana pretty well but just starting kanji..  Which I'm sure will be a lot harder.


It says you can write it in alternative forms, like いつ  which is how I saw it used for "the fifth month" writting in katakana as いつか (and in kanji as 五日) but why does the audio for the いつ  form still sound the same: "go"?  Shouldn't it sound like "itsu" in this case?  So いつか should sound like "itsuka".


Thanks tons
