I agree with ZenTurtle that learning to swim breaststroke with your face in the water and blowing bubbles gently would be a good starting point. Long glides with face in the water are also a good idea, and of course just blowing bubbles at the shallow end. I remember, when I was learning to swim at the rather late age of twelve or thirteen that at first I didn't like the idea of opening my eyes under water. I used to practise in the bathroom with my face in the wash basin. The same approach works for exhaling under water.Any handy basin will do. These things may sound silly and childish but they work.
