On 21 November, the world celebrates 'Hello Day' just to encourage people to take the opportunity to simply greet people, and recognise how important simple communication is in our lives.
The purpose is pretty simple, to promote peace all over the world, and bridge barriers between every nationality. Quite a simple, right? But, holds a great message within it.
*FYI* The day began in 1973 in acknowledgement to the conflict between Israel and Egypt and after that over 180 countries have taken part in it.
Now, it's your time to start and greet strangers today, and I am here to guide you with simple but different languages to say hello!

You might not have heard the name of this language.
