Saying “Cheers” Around the World

If you look hard enough, you can find a web site for just about anything you would encounter in your travels. Such as, how do you say “cheers” in Bengali? Turns out it’s “joy,” which seems pretty appropriate. Just check this How to say cheers site, run by a whisky lover’s group.

I seem to forget a new language about five minutes after I leave a country, but I still remember “Sherafe!” from living in Turkey and “Konbe!” from living in hard-drinking Korea.

I think I like the Zulu one listed here the best though: “Oogy wawa!” You should be able to manage that one no matter how many drinks you’ve had.
