Say "thank you"

Thank you is to me the most beautiful word - and the most useful word to know when you travel around. It really is "the magic word".

Also, knowing the translation of Good morning or Hello really helps getting around. Here is how to translate Thank you (and Good morning or Hello) in several languages, spelled as it sounds to me (a circumflex accent means the vowel is long, and an accent to the right "`" may mean that the syllable is emphasized):
