Hello again ;-)

Of course, that's what this group is for. Fire away with your questions and, of course, read what other people write so that you can see (usually) what is correct English.
thanks ! writing english is something very necessary today.
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
thanks ! writing english is something very necessary today.

Indeed it is. As is correct layout and punctuation ;-)

So...capital letter at the beginning of phrases ('thanks' and 'writing' above) and for proper nouns (such as 'english').
Most people would have written what you did as "Thanks! Writing in English is something that is very necessary today. But without the 'that is' it is perfectly correct. Keep it up.

(is : Have a good sunday is correct?)

"Have a good Sunday" - we capitalise the names of the days of the week, and the months, in English. And "I go to try" should be "I am going to try" or "I will try". By "whises", I think you mean "wish".

Have a nice day. It's sunny here too, it usually is fortunately, I live in Provence in southern France.
I whises a good sunday for you.
(is : Have a good sunday is correct?)

Yes, except it should be 'Sunday'.
By the way, 'I' (when it means you) is alway's a capital letter.
I whises a good sunday for you.

(is : Have a good sunday is correct?)

Yes, except it should be 'Sunday'.

"Have a good Sunday" is more of an American usage where it would be fine. In the UK it would be strictly correct, but we would tend to use "enjoy yourself on Sunday"

It is indeed. In my country, you can't get a decent job if you don't speak at least good English.
