Learn Hiragana wo を
を is pronounced “oh” with an almost silent w sound at the start.
Not pronounced “woah”!
を is mostly only used as the object particle marker.
Watashi wa nihongo wo benkyōshimasu.
I study japanese.
The katakana counterpart to を is ヲ. However, it’s almost never used. If trying to write a foreign word with a woah sound, “ウォ” is generally used instead.

How to write Hiragana wo を
The Hiragana を is made with 3 strokes. First is the horizontal line. Then the 2nd is the two part stroke intersecting this line in the middle. Start it from the top going diagonally down to the left side of the character.
Retrace the line halfway up to the first stroke and then curve out and down. Start the 3rd stroke in the middle right of the character, curving down, intersecting the tail end of the 2nd stroke, and then looping back around to make a horseshoe shape.
