At this site you can learn how to say greetings and several other words and phrases in hundreds of different languages. My goal is to include every language, so that people will be able to say at least a few words to anyone they meet, anywhere in the world.

 

Ethnologue, 17th Edition lists 7,105 languages spoken in the world. Approximately 3,000 of these languages are included on this website as of July 2014 (about 42% of the world's languages).
