I just noticed something. For "わに" it sounds like you said "にわ". Is this a mistake or am I hearing it incorrectly?

Sorry I made a mistake to pronounce it.
For Japanese it is unusual to read the word written only in "hiragana".
For example, ”わに”if it means an alligator, it is pronounced as wani, ”にわ”if it means a garden , it is pronounced as niwa.
It is very hard for japanese to imagine two letters word correctly.
Anyway I want to apologize it again.

Thank you for putting up a second recording!

I am getting these from a book that teaches the kana, but the book doesn't tell me what these words mean. Mostly I am just trying to learn the sounds for all of the kana as I am very new to Japanese.
