Hello I'm a beginner and I'm wondering when to use the right pronunciation of は, because sometimes it's pronounced "ha" and sometimes "wa".


は is pronounced as 'ha' when used as part of a word and 'wa' when used as a particle.

eg. 今日は早く帰ります。

きょう  やく かえります。 kyou wa hayaku kaerimasu.

(Rough translation : Today i'll go home early.) はな - hana(flower) はる - haru(spring)
