Different languages and the ways to say Welcome- One of your first word to the world

When it comes to learning a new language, Hello and  ‘Welcome’ are one of the first words learned. My interaction with many nationalities during my travels made me curious to learn new languages, it is fun.  I learnt few and others picked up from internet.
