    Indeed, amazing idea! I wonder how I haven't seen the e-mails and e-cards that you can send from there! I am sure my children would have liked to send some love to their grandparents :)

    This is a great idea! Knowing my daughter, though, who taught herself conversational Japanese a while back, we'll be at the Japan pavilion for hours while she chats away.

    I love this idea. The last time we visited I had my 5yo nephew tell the CM in Germany tchuss (an informal German goodbye) before we left and she loved it. It's a great and informative activity for the kids that, hopefully, gives something back to the great CMs at WS.

    I have been getting all the pronunciations for Merry Christmas so my kids can say that in different languages when we are at Epcot this December.

    I don't want this to come off the wrong way or anything, but salam aliekum or however you spell it in English actually means peace be unto you. The person would usually respond aliekum salam, which is basically wishing peace back to you.

    If you actually wanted to say hi, you would say marhaba.

    How are you is kif halick.

    To say I'm fine you could say mop suit.

    Then you would ask it back and say kif halick ente or enta depending on if it's a boy or girl.

    To say goodbye, you would usually use ma salam.

    I can't really write in Arabic, other than my name or something dumb like that. And I also am not webster's dictionary and I can't write it out all cool with the sounds and things. So I apologize if I didn't spell things correctly. Speaking arabic is much easier than writing it.

    Again, didn't mean to step on any toes or anything, just wanted to spread some knowledge.
