  1. Simona:

    Multumesc! ( romanian)

  2. Stuart:

    For the thirteen on that list I didn’t know, a sincere kia ora, as we say in Aotearoa.

  3. Ailís Nic Liam:

    One quick thing: “Go raibh maith agat” is correct in Irish if you’re only speaking to one person. If you’re speaking to more than one person, it’s “Go raibh maith agaibh.”
