It might be worth noting that some textbooks will teach 今日は as こんにちは in the early lessons to get the students familiar with kanji. Then in a later lesson it is stated that こんにちは is usually written in kana, and that the kanji is actually a non-standard usage and should be avoided.

Of course by this point many students have already gotten into the habit....


I think this should only be mentioned if we can name names. i.e. produce an example of at least one textbook (preferably still being published) that does this.Paul b

Introduction to Modern Japanese (Bowring & Laurie) does this. Lesson 3 introduces 今日は as konnichi wa. Then in lesson 6 introduces the reading of きょう for 今日 and uses this complication to begin a short lesson on alternate readings and 当て字.

I've seen other books do this too, but this is the one I have on me at work. :)
