I think Senpai is like an upperclassman, someone higher in rank than you.

That is the sense of it.

More literally, it means "Proceeding Person." It's a social term in Japanese that refers to the status of someone that's more experienced in doing something you're either doing or would like to, used most often in anime when refering to upperclassmen in school, though it applies within any sort of social system you can advance in, the military or a corporation being another example.

I carries with it the idea that they're your 'mentor.'

Kohai is the opposite. If you are my "Senpai" I am your "Kouhai."

Though it usually has an age connotation, it actually has to do with experience in a given field. 9 times out of 10 this means the older person is the "Senpai."

Default Re: What does senpai mean?

As a side note, 'Aniki' is a term they use in the series in a very similar way.

The difference with Aniki, however, is that it's exclusively male, and much more colloquial. Kinda like a Senpai version of 'Bro.' 'Aneki' is the female version of 'Aniki.'

If you are giving japanese lessons perhaps you want to go into detail about the significance of "Nakama" as opposed to "Tomodachi" as it is also quite important.

ne-chan - sister or "sis" as it is informal.

Kun - informal suffix typically used on males, -chan typical for females.

Saima means nothing to me unless it is a typo for -sama

-sama is a very formal and respectful suffix, used to give someone great honor or if there is a large gap in social status. For example: Hokage-sama
