Temat: Teaching English to Complete Beginners

I am in Brazil for three months and have some friends who want to learn english. Some of them are such beginners that they are only able to say hello, hi, beautiful, love and maybe a few other words here and there. They want to learn English and I have agreed to give them some lessons. I am struggling though with how to get them started. I speak a little Portuguese but not enough. My question is how do I teach them the basic phrases like my name is... etc. if i don't completely understand them and they don't understand me at all? Where do I start? Please help me.

(Note from moderator: This was posted separately from what is post #2. However, it is so similar to that other post, that I have amalgamated the two into one thread. My response to post #2 is in post #3.)
