I wondered if anyone would mind translating a sentence for me.

My daughter is doing a presentation about Japan to her class mates and would love to start it by saying something in Japanese,
"Hello, today I am going to tell you about Japan."
or something similar. It would be really helpful if you could write it as it is should be pronounced.
Thankyou ever so much lovely Mners.

Kon'nichiwa, kyō wa Nihon ni tsuite no purezentēshon o shimasu.

I was going to give a word by word breakdown, but then realised that talking about parts of speech like topic markers and verb markers will probably be overwhelming. So I'll limit to: in the sentence, Nihon is the word for Japan, and that the last word, shimasu, is the verb 'to do' (as in 'do a presentation') because Japan is a verb final language.
