I'm skipping the honorific stuff. I know I totally suck at it, but it's just a bunch of vocabulary (mostly), not grammar, really, and I'm doing grammar here. Vocabulary stuff I'm doing elsewhere (I've almost built my dictionary up through JLPT level 3, which is good enough for now -- probably post something about that in a couple days, since I hope to be done with that soon, soon, soon -- I'll worry about adding in the JLPT level 2 words in after I finish the drill programs and such). Anyway stick an お or ご on it, and add になる or する if it's a verb. Onward:

X + 方 「ほう」 + が + Y + より ~: "X is more ~ than Y" Use V-う, Adj-い, Na-Adj + な, N + の
一番 「いちばん」 ~: "~est", "most ~"
V-ない + で: "without doing whatever", "instead of doing whatever"
V-ます - ます + 始める 「はじめる」: "begin to do whatever", "begin to be whatever"
V-ます - ます + 終わる 「おわる」: "finish doing whatever"
V-ます - ます + 過ぎる 「すぎる」, Adj-い - い + すぎる: "be too whatver"
V-ます - ます + 方 「かた」: "how to do whatever" [note exciting additional pronunciation of 方] generally by の'ing it.

Blah, blah, blah:
