Re: Hi there

Welcome 2 the forum random_fruit!
Ooh I can name 8 ways of hello on that image thingy wanna c? well I'll tell ya anyway. 
Hello is of course English
Konnicha wa is Japenese (my second language)
Ciao is Italian (it means good bye as well)
Guten tag is German ( I have a friend who speaks German)
Bonjour is French (thats 'bout the only word I know)
Buenos dias is Spanish (my 3rd language i think but I've been 2 Mexico) 
Ni hao ma I think is Chinese ( learnt from the Beijing games on TV)
and I think Salaam is jewish or where eva they come or  something.

Re: Hi there

Salaam is Arabic!
But the word is used a lot in India, Pakistan etc. to greet people.

Re: Hi there

Ni hao means hello, adding 'ma' to the end makes it 'how are you doing today?'.
