    The roumaji is supposed to read “kono gakudan WA”.
    This is why roumaji is an ineffective way to learn Japanese.

    I mean, what’s so hard about learning a new writing system anyway?

    • Hello,

      Thank you for your comment, it may be read wa but is written “ha” and it is a choice we made to stick to the written version. Also, some people like to have the Romanji to learn so it is not up to you to judge.
      If you do not like having them you can just not read them however I do not think it is such a problem to have them and some people find it useful.

      Best Regards.
