Well, I am Japanese, but I'll just gie a few ^^

*How to count to 10*
ichi=1
ni=2
san=3
shi/yon=4
go=5
roku=6
shichi=7
pachi=8
kyuu=9
jyuu=10

*Random Words*

-chotto matte (kudasai)= wait up!, wait a sec
-aki= autumn
-haru= spring
-natsu= summer
-demo....= but...
-konnichiwa= hello (ONLY said after 12 pm, and can only be said ONCE. You can't keep saying it to the same person T.T)
-konbanwa= good evening (you CAN say it more than once, in the EVENING ONLY)
-sensei= teacher
-gomenesai/gomene= sorry
-sumimasen= sorry (literally means Excuse Me, said only to "excuse yourself", like if you accidentally stepped on someone's foot)
-itadakimasu!= (said before you eat a meal. a tradition, technically) sort of means Thanks for the food!
-gakkou= school (any general school)
-dai gakkou= college (literally means Big School, but yeah...)
-sayounara= good bye (formal)
-shitsureshimasu= good bye/excuse me (not formal...say it to your friends at school when you leave for home =D)
-moshi moshi= hello (ONLY on the phone you can say that. and don't pronounce it as "mushi mushi", because that means "bug, bug" ^^)
-yume=dream
-aoi=blue
-akane-red
-momo=peach/pink (techinically, it's the same thing. it can mean the peach or the colour)


NOTE: Good bye on the phone is mostly "shitsureshimasu", as "sayounara" is very rarely used.

Oh, and about what someone said above me, "Howl Zabimaru" from Bleach does not mean the baboon king thingie. Howl Zabimaru is just the command, you know? Like Matsumoto's command is "Growl, Ash Cat!" so yeah...

Have fun xD

Is it sayonara or sayounara? hachi or pachi? And you can also say "shichi" as "nana" too

kudasai means please
Adding "kudasai" only works on "te" form of any verb

Example:
chotto matte kudasai - Wait a sec please, Wait up please, Wait please
yukkuri hanashite kudasai - Please speak slowly
motto otona rashiku shite kudasai - Please act more grown-up

Yeah, "kudasai" makes it formal-sounding xD
It's pachi...at least that's the way my entire family says it, lol. Yeah, 7 can also be "nana".
And it's "sayounara" with the "u", because if you write it in hiragana, it has a "u" in it.
"Gochisosama" is also ok, you can leave out the "deshita" if ya want.

And here's more stuff:
Introducing Yourself
---> Watashi no namae wa _________ desu. = My name is ________.
-Words from the sentence:
Watashi=I (informal girls, formal boys)
namae=name
desu= (to be)

---> Hajimemashite! = Nice to meet you!
---> Yorushikunegaishimasu! = Pleased to be your acquaintance!

Questions
Simple basic questions can be made by adding "ka" to the end of a sentence.
For example, the sentence "Hikari desu." means "I'm Hikari."
To make it "Are you Hikari?" just add "ka" ---> "Hikari desu ka?"
Simple as that ^^ for basic questions, that is.

Leaving "deshita" in some words, makes it casual..Using "deshita" makes it more polite or formal..

eeto...Looks like you can say it on "sayonara" or "sayounara"
But theres no such number as "pachi"

Yoroshiku onegaishimasu - Please take care of me, Please be kind to me, Pleased to be your acquaintance. There are lots of meanings about this one..Well it depends on the situation
