    什么? If you want to say 'I was right' you'd want to say 我正确了 wo3 zhèngquè le. Also, you can't use 是 with adjectives like 好, as they're considered verbs in their own sense. They're called 'stative verbs' and are something that can be quite counterintuitive to English speakers

    Ooh!

    What does that sentence say?
    Pinyin: hāhā, bù yòng xiè!
    English: Haha, you're welcome/ don't worry about it etc.

    不用谢 is basically another way of saying 不客气 which is the standardised way of saying 'You're welcome'.

    To do that, it's all about reading text that has the character in it. There's this site that if you type in a character/phrase in Mandarin, it will come up with sentences but I can't remember the name of it. You should search it up, it might help you with remembering characters if you're an 'in context' person.

    Edit: Found the site, here's the link : http://www.nciku.com/

    啊 doesn't really carry any solid meaning. It's just a particle used at the end of a sentence to express surprise or enthusiasm
