I wrote hello hello -.-'
haha yes xD
Same mistake, chocoladenoot! Now I'm wondering how one would say "hello hello" in Danish?
We would say "Hallo-Hallo." :)
In the Philippines people would think you were asking for the dessert Halo halo
Omg love that comment
Mange tak, Kris!
Ha, so two positives do make a negative!
But careful they sound different.
Cool, this is similar to Finnish, where 'hei' can be used for 'hello', and 'hei hei' is used for 'bye'.
Moi and moi moi
Similar to Norwegian too. But "hei" as goodbye is mostly used on the phone.:)
I love this phrase! Just like English.
Indeed! I've been in Denmark for about 4 days now, and everyone here says "Hej hej" when parting; but if they know you're not from Denmark, they always say "Bye bye".
Which is more oftenly used, "hej-hej," "hej" by itself, or "farvel"? (When saying bye to someone.)
Usually I think you would say "hej-hej" to a child or close friend and "farvel" to an acquaintance because "hej-hej" is more informal. At least, this is how I have seen it used. If you're unsure of the situation the safest bet is "hej".
Hej hej is more used
Languages changes allways a bit. 40 years ago when i was living in Danmark the most people say Hi or tavs when enter and Farvel when you go again
How does Hello Hello Turn into bye bye???
It's the same word in various languages, Italian f.ex.
ok i will sound crazy but i'm sure that duo never taught me this one!
Welp, this his confused me a ton, especially when in Swedish you use "Hej hej" to put emphasis on your excitement to see someone, didn't realise across the Öresund it means bye bye. Makes sense though
So hej is equal to farvel..?
No, "hej hej" is equal to farvel. :D
No not really :-)
Well thank was...unexpected
If this is bye bye, how do I say "hi hi"? Thanks
I thought it sad hello hello lol
Aloha - both hello and bye
Its like multiplying two negative numbers, you get a positive. So hej hej means bye bye instead of hello hello
Hej Hej Monika? anyone out here?
it also means hellow hellow
could someone explain why hej is both hello & bye? Just wondering. Is it like one of those weird hi's when someone walking by says hi how are you but like youre walking so you just say hi. yeis
oh wait is hej just hi and hej hej is bye bye?
Hej - you use this most for a "hello" but you can take it as a "bye" as well.
Why 'hello' is not correct :(
This is not correct. In Swedish is usual to say Hej hej for Bye bye. I never heard Danish using this phrase.
