"School and bread"
Sorry, I'm confused... Why does this use 와? Because of the final vowel? If that's the case, couldn't 하고 work as well since it has been used with words that end in a vowel? Or do certain words take certain particles?
As far as I can tell (not very far), when a word ends in a vowel, you are free to use either 와 or 하고. The tips/notes for the Basics-1 unit suggest that 와 is common in writing, and 하고 is common in speaking.
Do you use 와 for singular and 과 for plural or when do you know when to use them
You use 와 when the word ends with a vowel and과 when the word ends with a consonant
Wait to sum things up: 와 and 하고 are for words that end in a vowel, but 와 is used commonly in writing and 하고 is commonly in speaking? And 과 is for words that end in a consonant?
