It is interesting how Phillipenes languages is. Here in Canada there is alot of Philipine people who usually don't speak Philipines but English!!! Does Philipines have ever spoke Spanish or Portuguese because of the names which are simular to Spanish!!!


Most Filipinos can speak English language because of its colonial past. WHen the Americans came on the country, they taught us well in speaking their language.

That explanation goes the same with the Spanish names -- it's all about our colonial past. Some elders here can fluently speak Spanish. This language was not contianually imposed in our education system though, that's why the younger generations cannot speak SPanish.

In Wales we tend to say Croeso (said like Croy saw) which is generally used to greet people to the country, and also to say "you're welcome" or we would say "hello, sut wyt ti?" Which is hello how are you to people older than yourself, or simply "iawn" to your friends. smileangelic

Welcome in Amharic (The official Ethiopian language) is EnQwan Dehna Metu is a respectful way of saying welcome. To a female it would be EnQwan Dehna Metash whereas for a male it would be EnQwan Dehna Metah.

In response to Niall's question though, in general to say hello Ethiopians bow their heads slightly and simply say Selam. Which means hello but has a double meaning as it can also mean, Peace.

"Thank you" in different languages
May 16, 2011

In my travels, there have been many times I have wanted to express gratitude in a language other than my own. How would I do so in yours?

The speakers of Slavey, one of Canada's many aboriginal languages, say "mahsi" (or "mahsi cho" for "thanks a lot" ). "Dagondih" is a greeting they use, loosely meaning "How are you?"
