Now as MYLOT is a great place I think mylotters who have joined are from all over the world.So I thought it would be a great place to put this question as knowing mylotters language as well as what they say to HELLO in their respective languages. Now after getting to know what they say to HELLO in their language it would be my pleasure to greet them in their own language for the future discussions. In our language HELLO is said as NAMASKARA & our language is KANNADA Whats yours?

Well I'm also a native English speaker. The most common phrases I use are : Hi, Hello and Hey. We actually had a few visitors in my classroom today and they taught the kids how to say hello in Korean but I must honestly say I don't quite remember and I don't want to totally butcher the spelling - so hopefully someone here is from Korea and will post it themself!

Well, it is an interesting topic. In my country, China, we say nihao(??) first when greet somebody or want to ask somebody who we don't know something. When you want say hello to a group of people, you can say dajiahao(???). In fact in China, you can say "have you eated?????"or "what are you doing??????" or something like that to the people you know. In my hometown, we don't say nihao(??) to people as greeting.
