Thank you very much for sharing your thoughts!
Many of the phrases you've listed are useful as well!
One thing I'd like to point out. For "please have a seat", the correct way to say it is:
Lastly, these are ones that 先生 wanted us to know, but aren't useful in day to day like those others, unless you want to go to Japanese ceremones or study in a non college school: 起立（立って）、気をつけ、礼、着席（座って）。These are used for ceremonies and in person class rooms I believe, but 御気を付けて is used in other context, like when you're telling someone to stay alert.
I think a super important one that was left of the list is 「どうぞ」, as in "どうぞよろしく(お願いいたします)" for meeting someone, or "はい！どうぞ～！" for when you give someone something.
And then of course when prompting others but don't want to use ___なさい you can say something like ここにお座りとどうぞ。
The other huge ones I noticed were missing were いただきます！ and ごちそうさま！, which are used before and after a meal.
And of course there aren't true beginner words, but everyone should learn いる、ある、する、いたす、and です as soon as possible. Without these words you can't even form sentences. Same with topic marker は, and the other particles, particularly (no pun intended) と、も、や、よ、ね、なぁ、and ぞ.
Thank you for posting. We are very glad to have you here! We hope you are enjoying our lessons.
