the phonetics (without audio) from Den Danske Ordborg:
A lot of languages have words sounding very similar to English. They're cognates. I know many languages have them as well, but as an example, Japanese has 2 alphabets and the Chinese kanji system.
The first alphabet is the first you learn, in like 1st grade of elementary school, and the second alphabet you might learn in 2nd grade of elementary school. The first (Hiragana ひらがな) is solely for writing originally Japanese words, or writing the pronunciations of the kanji. The second (Katankana カタカナ) is for writing foreign words in Japanese, and is also used to write most animal names. Japanese has a whole alphabet, just for foreign words.
