Italian - Good Morning

We just learned a few ways to say hello and goodbye in Italian, like ciao and arrivederci.

Many times in Italian instead of hello people say good morning, good day, good evening or good night.

Good Morning - buongiorno - sounds like boo-oh-n-jee-oh-rd-no /?/

Good Afternoon - buon pomeriggio - sounds like boo-oh-n poh-may-dee-jee-oh /?/

Good Evening - buonasera - sounds like boo-oh-nah-say-dah /?/

Good Night - buona notte - sounds like boo-oh-nah no-tay /?/

Do you remember how to say it in German?
Guten Morgen, Guten Tag, Guten Abend, Gute Nacht

In Spanish:
Buenos días, buenos tardes, buenas noches

In French:
bonjour, bonsoir, bonne nuit
