I'm gonna try and put together some stuff to help teach the basics, such as simple phrases and how to read hiragana.
I'm not very good at teaching, but I'll try and provide resources, and of course, you can always ask me for help. I'm not exactly fluent, but every bit of practice helps me as well.
A friend recommended this site as a good resource: http://www.sf.airnet.ne.jp/~ts/japanese/cover.html
Well, I suppose it would be good to start with "ganbatte!", or "do your best!"
