How to say 'Cheers' in different languages

How to say 'Cheers' in different languages

If you have the travel bug — you know what it's like to hop around the globe. There is so much to see out there, but perhaps the most rewarding part of traveling, is meeting the locals. When you sit down to have a drink with your newfound friends, you're going to learn a thing or two about their culture — and that's the best part of traveling.

We all know that learning a new language is a tricky task, but that doesn't generally stop you from picking up a few key words — especially when you're sitting around the table, having a few drinks. If you have a beer, a glass of wine, or a cocktail in your hand, you bet you're going to want to toast to your experience, and along with that, comes a word we know and love — cheers!

The only problem is, 'cheers' doesn't necessarily translate within every country you visit. Whether you're toasting to 'good health' or 'a happy, prosperous life,' before you take your first sip, 'cheers' those around you in their native tongue.

Don't know where to start?

Luckily, we created a comprehensive list, so that you can impress your new friends — wherever you may go.

"I'm not typically someone who likes to take Advil, Tylenol or any other type of pill to help with headache prevention, but I've got to say, OverEZ works for me! The fact that it is all herbal based and natural appeals to my love of health. Just as important though, it really works."
