This question already has an answer here:
I am just a begginer. I finished learning Hiragana . Now , I am learning Katakana . I realized that they are same. So that made me worry a little . How do I decide which one to choose ? Are there any words that you cant use katakana instead of hiragana or hiragana instead of katakana letters in them ? Also, If write it like that will Japanese people can understand what I meant ?
