If you were to look back at how your friendships started, chances are, they began with the word ‘hello’ or its equivalent.

Have you travelled abroad to a country where citizens speak little to no English? The odds are that the extent of the locals’ knowledge of the English language starts and ends with ‘hello’.

As a traveller, one of the first few words you would teach yourself to say is ‘hello’ in the local language, which the locals almost always appreciate.  

Clearly, languages play an important role in our lives and are crucial when it comes to communicating and connecting with people of different continents and cultures. But how well do you know how to say ‘hello’ in the world’s languages?
