View topic - Romanji
What I am asking is: Is there a 'correct' way to be spelling these words, or is it due to a particular school of teaching?

"Arigatou" is a direct "kana to roman letter" transliteration. The "arigato" you see is probably used initially in order to familiarize the learner with the word. If some people who have little to no knowledge of Japanese were to read "Arigatou", they may pronounce it incorrectly as "A-RI-GA-TOO" instead of "AH-RI-GA-TOH".
