    I'm doing this from the idea that you want to be quite polite to whoever you are talking to.

    1. こんにちは、お元気 ですか。
    (Konnichiwa, o-genki desu ka.)

    2. 元気です。あなたは。
    (Genki desu. Anata wa.)

    3. ごめんなさい、私は 今ちょっと忙しい です。
    (Gomennasai, watashi wa ima chotto isogashii desu.)

    4. また後で電話します。
    (Mata ato de denwa shimasu.)

    5.さようなら / また ね (more like 'see you later')
    (Sayonara / mata ne)

    This is just how I would translate them. I'm sure you'll get some other, different responses!
    Thanks so much

    Know any good websites where I can learn?
    http://jalup.com/ has a lot of nice advice. The only thing I disagree with this site about, is the need to use monolingual dictionaries at such an early stage.

    And remember that the topic particle, romanised as "wa" is always written は (even in こんにちは)
