HI! how are u doing!! i want to know! which is the correct way to write : Konnichiwa! こんにちわ Or こんにちは Or 今日は?
Although, could U explain the different between Ha and Wa! When do we have to use each particle?


わ is not a particle. It is just Hiragana that is used for words, like わたし、わがし、みずぎわ and things like that.

は is the particle that is pronounced "wa", the only time the hiragana は(ha) is pronounced "wa" is when it is a particle. but is also pronounced "ha" in words. like はへん はいく はいいろ

the correct way of writing konnichiwa is I think こんにちは, because 今日は will be read "kyou wa" ( meaning, "as for today...")

however, just as english also any languages is not always used CORRECTLY... a lot of people when writting mails or typing on internet write こんにちわ or こんちゃ or such things... but it is not correct, but it is understood.

like "What is up?" or "What's up?" is correct, but "sup" is not a word. but is understood.

I hope you understand.

thank you

魔法の世界

まほうのせかい

Mahou no sekai

"World of Magic"

we have no dirrect translated world for making "magic" into an adjective.

but I looked in dictionary just now, when I put magical, I get "不思議な" which I think is more "mysterious"

so maybe 不思議な世界

Fushigi na sekai

"Mysterious World"
