    Sore wa = That is

    For example
    A. Sore wa nan desu ka (What is that?)
    B. Kore wa hon desu (This is a book)

    You can also find kore wa and are wa, the difference is the distance from the object

    Kore (This) > when the object is within your reach
    Sore (That) > is when it's not within your reach but near someone else you're talking to
    Are (That) > is when the object is far from you and your companions
