No worries! Anyway, I think the best place to begin studying Japanese is from the written system. Most textbooks and online sites will write everything in hiragana/katakana so you may as well learn those first of all. Hiragana is the most important so I’d start there.
This website lets you hover over the character to learn the proper stroke order. I 10000% recommend learning things according to the stroke order to make your life easier down the line. After you master hiragana, you can learn Katakana, which isn’t so hard since many of them are very similar.
To learn, pick a few lines at a time (the vowel line and K- line) and write them over and over while saying the sounds until you can remember them. For self-learning Japanese, I don’t have any amazing advice or anything since I only self-taught myself the writing system, I took classes after that to learn the basics so I’m not sure how one would best study that by themself.
