Saying Hello in EPCOT! =0)

Here's something fun we started when Erich was around 6yrs old.He's since taught his step brother Jonathan too.I thought y'all might enjoy it.

They practice saying hello in the WS languages before we go to WDW.The first time Erich was so excited about going to each country and talking to a CMs!The CM's seem to be really happy when you greet them in their native langauage!! So here's a few that I know!

Mexico...Hola (OH-lah)

Norway...god dag (goo-DAHG)

China...Ni hao (nee HOW)

Germany...gutten Tag (GOOT-en tahkh)Good Day

Italy...buon giornio (boo-on JOR-no)Good Day
or ciao (chow)hello or good bye

Japan...ohayo gozaimasu (oh-hi-yoh-goh goh-zy-ee-mahs) Good Morning

Morocco... Salam alekoum (sah-LAHM wah-LAY-koom)

France...Bonjour (bohn-ZHOOR)

There's also a place in Innoventions West Side that you can send an e-mail hello back to family and friends at home! Be sure to check out the IBM e-mail postcards while there! There was no wait while we were there this past October.The best thing is if ya don't like the picture it took you can keep taking one until you get it right!

Journey Into the Imagination also has several computers that you can send a photo and email greeting home.This is really fun because you can "play" with your picture.Turn yourselves into cartoons or animals.Personalize your greeting several different ways.

Enjoy! Ciao!

Printed your idea about saying hello in native language for something to do in our 14 hour car trip.

Thank you for the languages. I will have to teach my DD how to say those when we go again. That would be nice to be able to say hello.

This is a cool idea! My oldest DS is into new languages since I speak to people from all around the globe for my job. He's always asking where I talked to after I worked then goes into school and tells the kids how to say things in other languages.

This would be a great way to reinforce his diversity. Thanks for the tip!

I'll give this a bump and add....

that when my kids were age 4+ I would do this starting several weeks before a WDW trip:
Put the name of each WS country on a piece of paper and place in a "hat". Each week the kids would pick a country from the hat. For that whole week we learned about that country. We went to the library and got books and videos, we learned a few words in the language ("hello"), and eat a sample of the food of the country (if available).
This really enhanced the kids enjoyment of the WS.
