Global Greetings

Global Greetings: Say “hello” to the world!

Got five seconds? Say “hello” to the world! It’s easy, it’s quick and it’s free! For each language that your students speak as a first language, send us a five-second video of one student saying “hello.” OneWorld Classrooms edits the clips into one large video and posts it on this page. To receive participation guidelines, Email We hope to involve you and your students!

Here are our first videos! We updated them on 12/4/17 and will do so again as we receive more greetings! The first video features 66 students from 12 countries saying 38 greetings in 31 languages. The second is abbreviated to include only one clip of each greeting. We welcome you to show the videos at your school: in class, on a hallway video screen, in assemblies, or at school community events.
