"Salaan" means "Hello," and "Sideed tahay?" means "How are you?"

Thanks to the addition of a new module, Somali speakers can now learn English through Pronunciator also.
You can study 80 languages in any of 50 languages with Pronunciator, which offers the largest ESL curriculum on the planet. So if you want to learn how to greet your relatives in Norway, or meet the newcomers down the block, Pronunciator is the place to start.
