Basic words or sentences in your language

Ok, I’ve added those 2 last lines (Excuse me and Check, please) in Korean, too.
We say, “I’m full” a lot because Koreans are very hospitable and they will keep piling food on your table/bowl and they will insist that you eat more. I’ve experienced the same thing in other cultures, too, and I had to learn how to say, “No thank you. I’m full” real quick in their language - not that they will listen to you anyway! :smile:

Hope you reply me :slight_smile:

There are a lot of special characters and letter combos ( so it might be hard to get the pronunciation right… If you’re curious paste them in google translate and listen :slight_smile:
Some of the phrases may have different forms, in those cases I’ll be using the 1 person speaking to 1 person form.

  • Good morning = Dzień dobry
  • Good evening = Dobry wieczór
  • Hi! = Cześć!
  • Welcome! = Witaj!
  • What’s your name? = Jak masz na imię?

  • I’m sorry / Excuse me = Przepraszam
  • Bye! = Pa!
  • Goodbye! = Do widzenia!
  • Good night! = Dobranoc!
  • yes / no = tak / nie (also some people may be confused when they hear a Polish person saying no and they find out they were actually saying yes / agreeing - no is indeed an informal way of saying yes)
  • I don’t know = Nie wiem
  • I don’t understand = Nie rozumiem
  • Where are you from? = Skąd jesteś?

2 of my favourite tongue twisters as a bonus :smiley:

  • W Szczebrzeszynie chrząszcz brzmi w trzcinie (In the town of Szczebrzeszyn a beetle buzzes in the reeds).

  • Szedł Sasza suchą szosą, bo gdy susza szosa sucha. (Sasha was walking down the dry road, because during the drought the road is dry)


Español (Spanish):

  • Hello: Hola
    -How are you?= Cómo estás? (informal)
    -My name is= Mi nombre es…
    -Thank you= Gracias
    -Nice to meet you= Mucho gusto, or, gusto en conocerte
    -Bye= Adiós.


  • Hello= Oi (Brasil), olá (Portugal)
  • My name is= Meu nome é… (Brasil), Eu chamo-me…(Portugal)
    -How are you? = Como está você? (Brasil), Como estás? (Portugal informal)
    -Thank you= Obrigado (Masc.) Obrigada (Fem)
    -Nice to meet you= Muito Prazer

Thanks for correcting :smiley:
“kommen” is wrong… -.- I wanted to write “komme”

I like this :smile:


  • Hello = Hello (No offical translation)
  • How are you? = Kamusta ka?
  • My name is Christine = Ako si Christine
  • Thank you = Salamat

Here’s some American English from New England. Specifically, Boston and Greater Boston:

-Hello = Hey
-How are you? = How ah yah?
-What’s your name? = Who ah you?
-What’s new/What’s up? = 'Sup?

  • I’m fine = I’m good
  • Thank you = Thanks
  • You’re welcome = No problem
  • I’m sorry = I’m wicked sorry
    -That’s really nice/That’s really great = That’s wicked pissah
  • Goodbye = Latah (“later” with long a sound on the first a)
  • Beer = Bee ah
  • Here = Hee ah
  • Weird = Wee uhd

Remember to always replace “r” with the sound of “ah” and add “r” to the end of words that end in vowels (unless the vowel is silent or the word ends in an “o”). If an “o” is in the middle of a word, pronounce is “aw”. Use the word “wicked” as a modifier/intensifier as often as possible, and never pahk yah cah in Hahvahd Yahd because you’ll get towed.


Gosh this is so interesting to read. English truly has many varieties
