Global Greetings

Global Greetings

How do people greet their friends everywhere they go?
In English we all like to say "hi there" and "hello".

What do we say in other places I would like to know?
When we see brand new faces how do we say "hello"?

In German we say "hallo"
"Hallo" (children repeat)

In French "bonjour"
"Bonjour" (children repeat)

In spansih we say "ola"
"Ola" (children repeat)

Italian it's "ciao"
"Ciao" (children repeat)

Portuguese "oi"
"Oi" (children repeat)

Greek "yasoo"
"Yasoo" (children repeat)

Chinese "Ni hao"
"Ni hao" (children repeat)

Those are the way we say hello...

It's fun to learn new things to say everywhere we go,
It's fun to make new friends each day to smile and say hello!

Hints and Tips:

  • Add more greetings in different languages based on the children in the room 
  • For each greeting point to the country flag
