Wow! What a great idea -- I was wondering how I could get my 8 yr old son excited about WS..... he's an active thrill-chaser & was not at all interested in anything I read to him about WS. But he LOVES trying out new languages and phrases! Thanks!!!

While we were in Epcot and they had the masks that the children took to each country and had stamped while they were stamping them..we asked them to write our childrens names in their native language in the back. Seeing their names written in different lanuguages was a great experince and something we can hold onto forever.:cutie:

Thanks for a great idea. This'll be cool for the kids to do.

    Hmmmm; the last time I went to Epcot, we made it a point to learn to say "beer" in the language of every country as we ordered them. Luckily, the last two countries going clockwise are English-speaking, because we were in no shape for a quiz by then.
    LOL!!!!:rotfl2: :thumbsup2

    Looks like you forgot our Neighbors to the North:

    Canada...Hello, eh! (he-LOH AY)

    (When you grow up with Canadian TV, you get a little silly :jester: )
    In Canada, we also speak french, so don't forget to say bonjour and hello! And it's different kind of french than the one in France!

    It just depends on the time of day.
    ohayogozaimasu - (oh-HA-yoooo go-zah-ee-mah-ss) good morning
    konnichiwa - (kon-NEE-chi-wah) good day
    konbanwa - (kon-BAHN-wah) good evening
    oyasuminasai - (oh-YAH-sue-me-nah-sigh) good night

    you could also add
    sayonara - (sah-YOOOO-nah-rah) good bye
    roll your "r" slightly for the proper l-r blend

    I would go with konnichiwa during the day.

    We love your idea of saying hello. We tried pictures in each country holding up native items like maracas and pinatas in Mexico. Cheap and cute in pictures.
