Thank you! Gracias! Hvala! Khawp khun! благодарам! Merci! for Jennifer's Language Blog!
Jennifer's Language Page shows you how to say, "thank you" in over 2,000 languages! It also includes "please," greetings, and how to ask a person's name, the phrases that open the door to a relationship ripe with opportunities to learn about each other's countries. Write the phrases on an index card and keep it in your pocket when you venture into the city. Don't be shy to pull it out and read the phrases. Believe me, your efforts will be appreciated! You don't want to be seen as the, "Ugly American," slowly and loudly enunciating each English word, cramming them down a local's ear. Even though many people around the world do speak English, saying even a few words in the local language will enrich your sojourn and take you places you never dreamed you could go.
