when do i use はand わ i know that in the japanese language a lot of words use は instead of わ like こ んにちは and こんばんは, i also think the particle わ is written as は also. i was curious as to if there was a way of identifying when to use は in the place of わ?

when は is read as ''wa'', it's a particle that is used to mark the topic of sentence, in other words "the topic is anything that the speaker wants to talk about''. when は is read as ''ha'' is just the hiragana that is part of a word as in: 箸 HAshi = chopstick, 橋 haSHI = bridge, 花 haNA = flower... now for こんばんは,こんにちは は have a look here: I hope it helps you a bit.
