This flash animation should help you learn how the Hiragana is written. Each sign consits of a number of pen strokes. In Japanese, for every glyph, there is a certain stoke order and stroke direction. Even though you end up with the same character even if you don't respect the order, it is good to learn the proper order in which every stroke is drawn as well as the proper direction. Japanese people will notice if you don't do it right and might consider it a lack of knowledge of their language.
Addressing an envelope correctly helps get your letter to the correct destination on time. Many people don't realize that there's a "right" way to address an envelope; if it arrives at the right place, you did it correctly... right? Unfortunately, this is not the case. If you're writing an address on an envelope to a business contact, it's especially important to write it correctly so that you are professional. This is a skill that you'll likely use time and time again for work, so you'll want to do it correctly.
