How To Say ‘Welcome!’ In 10 Languages

It stands to reason that if you’re learning a new language, you’re probably the one who would be welcomed by a native speaker and not the other way around. But sometimes, it pays to be able to know how to say welcome in Spanish or German — say, if you’re hosting an exchange student from another country and you want to offer a proper hello, or if you’re meeting your new in-laws and you’d like to formally welcome them to your home in their own tongue. First impressions are important, are they not?

Without further ado, here is the quick and handy guide to verbally embracing someone in 10 different languages.

German — Willkommen!

Spanish — ¡Bienvenido/a!

French — Bienvenue !

Italian — Benvenuto/a!

Portuguese — Bem-vindo/a!

Swedish — Välkommen!

Turkish — Hoş geldin!

Polish — Witaj!

Indonesian — Selamat datang!

Russian — Добро пожаловать! (dobro pozhalovat’!)
