In Melaka - one of the oldest towns in Malaysia, you can take a boat tour of the town, and the guide there (who has been doing the riverboat tour for over 40 years) has learnt to say thank you, see you again in about 160 different languages.... it is amazing hearing him to say: in English, goodbye, in French au revoir, in German,.....in Chinese.... etc etc he knows it all off by heartt and he says it every time!

In Israel, they speak:

- Ivrit(some people call it Hebrew)
- Arabic
- English

That's the order on road signs, etc.
But...the official languages are Arabic and Hebrew...

You can use draasvityeh for hi, its just priyet it more seen as 'hi'. Draasvityeh is definately more formal and more 'hello' like.

Just nice, very nice! However i did not understand anything.
dear all, let me say correct words for russian (as soon as i am russian):

- privet = friendly hi
- [zdravstvui] (transcription) = formal to equal person
- [zdravstvuite] (transcription) = formal to several persons, and polite

What is this - "shark matey" ?

Do you live in Alma-Ata/Kazakhstan? And you don't speak russian? Can't believe this... Or this language is already prohibited there?
