Difference between Hiragana and Katakana?

Q: Um.. one question whats the diffrence between Hiragana and Katakana? – Alexa
A: Katakana is used mainly for writing words that are borrowed from English ( or other languages) such as ゲーム = ge mu = game.  Hiragana is used for filling the bits in between the Chinese Kanji Characters.  If you speak English and you’re just starting learning Japanese, katakana is more useful than hiragana!
