I am sure that at one point or the other we must have been friends, or at least must have known people, who speak a language other than the language we speak. I, for one, had many. Since English is the world's lingua franca, I assume that it would be a little difficult for people whose first language is not English to converse in it, though with time and practice it becomes better than before. Wouldn't it be nice if we could know a few simple words to greet them though? It will not only be friendly, but also will be welcoming for them.

If you have a friend or a partner who is Spanish, the person will love it if you could say greetings in their languages. Mentioned below is the list of languages and against them is written how the word "welcome" is said in different languages. It will not only tell you how to say the word, but also how to write it in different languages. Just next to the words you may find few abbreviations like pl.(plural), sing.(singular), formal, or informal as per its use.

Any language is beautiful, even more so when people speak it. Language is as vivid and distinct as the stars in the galaxy, and it must be respected. It is used to express oneself. It is not practically possible to learn different languages, and by different I mean more than 10. So, the least we can do is learn how to express good sentiments in different languages.
