My mother tongue is Finnish and "Hyvää päivää" means good day in our language. It is very hard to pronounce, because there are no ä:s in english... Our other official language (in Finland) is Swedish. It comes from the times when Sweden had conquerred Finland... Now we have to learn it at school, but that's okay because I'm good at it Good day to all of you

my mothers tongue is waray and cebuano and those are some of the local dialect here in my country though our main language is tagalog so we speak and write both of them, in "good day" in waray dialect we say it "maupay nga adlaw" then in cebuano we say "maayong buntag" and in main language whichh is tagalog we say "magandang umaga"

i am from the philippines and my mother tongue is tagalog. in tagalog, we say "magandang araw". though filipino is our national language, which is includes different dialects like tagalog, cebuano, ilonggo, etc. i still love tagalog which is the first one that i came to learn, before i know and learn some other dialect.
