I still can't see the characters.
Oh well.
S/He covered everything, but if you don't know numbers, then here they are:
ichi 1
ni 2
san 3
yon / shi 4
go 5
roku 6
shichi 7
hachi 8
kyuu 9
juu 10
juuichi 11
juuni 12
nijuu 20
Nijuuichi 21
Nijuuni 22
shijuu 30
yonjuu 40
hyaku 100
I may be normal but I don\'t think so.
I\'ve been studying Japanese for 4 years, but forgot 2 years of it!! aghhh stupid spanish class sucked all of my japanese memory out...
Oh well. Expect me to correct people on thier grammar etc.

Ok, well I'm not too sure on the where u were born answer cos my teacher has been teaching me the word "kuni" = country.

So, here we go

Q1: O-namae wa nan desu ka?

A1: Watashi no namae wa <insert name> desu.

Q2: Nan-sai desu ka?

A2: Watashi wa <insert age> -sai desu.

Q3: -------- Not sure on this one - haven't encountered it yet and I don't want to make a guess.

Q4: The really hilarious thing about this is I can't remember :/. I know the answer..but not the question...hmmm.

Q5: -------- Dunno :/.

Q6: anata no denwa bangou wa nanban desu ka?

A6: Ok, now after each part of your number you have to say "no" like "-" = "no" So, for example, my number is 2034-155-1022.
So, you would say Watashi no denwa bangou wa ni(2) zero(0) san(3) yon(4) No(-) Ich/Ichi(1) Go(5) Go(5) No(-) Ich/Ichi(1)
Zero(0) Ni(2) Ni(2) ban desu

Hope that wasn't too complicated.

Really? How so?

Translations:

Of what nationality are you?
I'm Australian

(The second set is obscure... I'm not sure about the usage of "de" instead of "ni" there. And I think you're trying to say "tokoro" [place])

Where did you come from?
I came from Hong Kong.
