phonetic writing of japanese

Asked 8 years ago

hello my friends!

I have a question. Is there somewhere in the internet a site that proposes the traduction of english words or phrases into japanese? but not in katakana, hirogana, but in phonetic writing (like "watashi wa", "eki", "densha", etc.)

Thank you very much for your help!

Know someone who might be able to answer this question?

What you are looking for is romaji.  And our first initial lessons cover hiragana and how they correlate to an approximate English pronunciation.  The thing with Romaji is that it soon becomes a problem.  That's why we teach your Hiragana initially.  It will make learning Japanese easier. It can be a little difficult to learn at first but with our lessons and drills, you'll soon be able to see the pronunciation of japanese words quickly.
