How do you say hello in your native language?

In my native languages, which are Russian and Belarusian, hello would be zdravstvuyte and dobry dzien respectively. They are probably not easy to pronounce for non-native speakers. But I think pronouncing hello in Korean is even harder. If you want to say hello to someone in Korean you have to say annyeonghaseyo. I don't speak Korean, so don't know how to pronounce this word correctly. To me it sounds like I am sneezing when I try to pronounce annyeonghaseyo. I must be going bonkers. How do you say hello in your native language?

@kobesbuddy I am sure English is not the only language that does this... but why include letters, in words, that are not even pronounced? Or why use one letter that sounds like another letter? Why not use that letter instead?
