Whirled Peas, Please

 Annyong ha shimnikka
Since today is World Hello Day and since one of our grandsons is here for the weekend, I thought I would greet you in Korean.    
He understands Korean and can speak it well for a three year old.

World Hello Day began in the fall of 1973 in response to the conflict between Israel and Egypt.
By saying hello to ten people today, you show the importance of personal communication in preserving peace.
 How about saying hello in one of these languages?

Konichiwa (koh-Nee-chee-wah) is hello in Japanese.
Jambo (JAM-bo) is hello in Swahili.
Hola (OH-la) is hello in Spanish.
Ni hao (nee-Ha-OW) is hello in Chinese.
Bonjour (bohn-Zhoor) is hello in French.
Buon giorno (bwohn-JOR-noh) is hello in Italian.
Annyong ha shimnikka (An-YOH HASHim-ni-kah) is hello in Korean.
Czesc (Chesht) is hello is Polish.
Zdravstvuite (ZzDRAST-vet-yah) is hello in Russian.
Al Salaam a' alaykum (ahl sah-LAHM-ah-ah-LAY-Koom)) is hello in Arabic.
