What languages can you say "Hi, my name is..." in?

(Silence) #1

Another useless thread!


English: Hi, my name is Carl.
Swedish: Hej, jag heter Carl.
French: Bonjour, j’mapelle Carl.
Hungarian: Szia, A navam Carl.
Thai: Sawatdi, chau cheu Carl.
German: Guten tag, ich haisen Carl
Catalonian: Hola, meu nom este el Carl (hope I got that right!).

And the Swedish “Sjörövarspråket”… if you count that as a language:
Hohejoj, jojagog hohetoteror Carl.

Ok thanks, and I think I got the Thai one wrong too… must have mixed it up with something.

(I love you M.E. Kay) #4

Well, In spoken form most people say “j’mappelle”.

Spanish : Hola, me llamo Alex.

Russian: Sdravstvuyte, menia sowut Aleksandr.

(Silence) #8

Just saying “Hi” seems difficult ;).

(dicfish) #9

Well it’s more “Good Day!”, “Hi” would mean “Privet!”

(korano) #10

Russian definitley seems like a decidedly difficult language to learn for Westerners

(The Stranger) #11

I can say goodbye in Russian: “PAKA” :wink:

G’day, my name’s Darryl. (Australian)

My name isn’t Darryl of course but if I was Australian there’s a fair chance it would be. :wink:

(Stanton) #16

Isn’t it always Bruce in Australia?

(Yodlaf Peterson) #17

Don’t they ask questions with answers in Australia?

Whats your favourite hobby sport?

Whats your name Bruce?

Whats your favourite colour blue?

(Phil H) #18

According to Monty Python, yes. ;D
But from experience I found that Darryl or Brett are far more common.

Or Russel!
