Greetings

"Have you ever stopped to consider how many people are saying "hello" to each other today, and in how many different languages? If you wanted to say "hello" to everyone on the planet, you would have to learn at least 2,796 languages and greet at least 6,500,000,000 (six and a half thousand million) people, (or six and a half billion in US numbers). Here are some of the ways of saying "hello" around the world."

Hello.
Holà. Bonjour. Ciào. Konnichi wa. Olá. Aloha. Namaste. Shalom. Ni hao. Hallo....

Just thought i'd greet you all in my first post with a simple but frequently used word.
