Добра ноќ :) 


All Slavic languages sound a bit the same specially on these basic expressions. But there ARE differences

Now I thought about it, we have no direct translation for "Good night" in Filipino. 

We only have "Magandang Gabi" which means "Good evening!"

Well, I'm studying English, but I speak Portuguese (Brazil).


In Portuguese, we say "Boa Noite". Yeah, It appears rather Spanish.

In Egyptian they say Sabha al Khair for good morning, I can see where the languages share roots :)
