Later on, you will encounter the small , which is also a hiragana character. This character does not represent a specific sound, but is used to create a double consonant. For example, the word やっぱり is written yappari and the word ほっこり is written hokkori. In the lesson about conjugating い-adjectives you will encounter the word なかった. This word is pronounced na + kat + ta with the ending with a t-sound intead of the usual a-sound.
