I'm confused. Please help

why は is spelled with wa? why it didn't use わ?

こんばんは

is it ok to say " どう ですあ?". Then, how about the example that you guys gave above? The one like, "最近、どう ですか? "

Please teach me a lot.

WOuWOuWOuW

Well, you said, when "how do you do" is in japanese, it isn't suppose to be like "どう ですか?”, instead, use " お 元気 でえすか?” So, what about that example you give? " 最近 どう ですか?”. Is it ok to use it?

Please teach me a lot.

WEEE
