Hello everyone! お名前は、、カイル・ヘギー(KYLE HEGGE)です。はじめまして、どうぞよろしく!I just came across this site and I thought, これはいいかんがいですね!Anyway, I'm hoping that I can meet someone who shares an interest in learning Japanese and will want to try to communicate back and forth in an attempt to get better. I'm currently a 二年生 studying at Colorado State University blah, blah, blah. All you really need to know is that I want to get better at Japanese. I don't know if a lot of Japanese people frequent this site but it would be cool to find someone from Japan to communicate with as well.

Is 今日はみなーさん!supposed to be "Hello Everyone!"
Because I don't think 今日は is read as "konnichiwa."
Its generally used for 今日(は), which means (as for)today & is read as kyou (wa) :)

Actually, 今日は is prononced 'konnichiwa' as I have been told. If you were writting a serious and formal letter, I believe it's common to use more kanji, even in words normally written in hiragana, like in that word.

yes, 今日は can be pronounced either way, I believe, depending on context. kyo wa - "as for today" or konnichiwa - "good afternoon/hello"

the standard reading in kyou. It can be read konnichi but always remember konnichi is a non-standard reading. This means people read it kyou, do a double-take when it doesn't seem to fit, then read it konnichi. Usually better to write in hiragana unless there is some reason to use the kanji.
