This is the link which has sufficient set of words which can be learn't over the period of time, by regular reading.

Re: Learning Japanese - THE PRONUNCIATION

THE BASIC VOWELS ARE :

ใ‚ a - pronounced as double a i.e. : 'aa'

ใ„ i - pronounced as 'e' in english

ใ† u - pronounced as 'oo' in loo

ใˆ e - pronounced as 'a' in english

ใŠ o - its a normal 'o'


Then comes the consonant series :

Join the letters K, S, T, N, H, M, R to form the letters

For eg:

ใ‹ -> ka (or kaa)
ใ
-> ki (or ke)
ใ -> ku (or koo)
ใ‘ -> ke (or kay)
ใ“-> ko

and so...on.

Let me know if this is simple enough. So, that we can proceed further..
