You have programs and friends that teach you Japanese. But they haven't even taught you to spell "konnichiwa" correctly? Since romaji is completely phonetic, you must be saying the phrase wrong as well if you are spelling it wrong. Sorry if I sound sarcastic but we the native speakers of Japanese are extremely keen on mistakes with vowels. Since we only have 5 vowels in our language, any mistakes with them are pretty much fatal. Ganbatte cho~dai.
