Here's How To Say 'Friend' In Every Country Around The World

"Kawan" means "friend" in Malaysia.

On July 30, the world celebrated the International Day of Friendship — a day meant to defend our human bonds and remind us that we are all "united for the greater good," according to a description on the United Nations website.  

Of course, we can all celebrate our friendships in different ways; recognizing the friendships we share with people in our workplace, our personal lives, our families, and beyond. But while friendship is a universal concept, everyone says "friend" differently, from "ami" in French to kawan in Malay and amigo in Spanish.

So to continue the celebration, Taxi2Airport created a fascinating map that shows how people say "friend" in every country. Now, use it to remind your friend, no matter where they are, that they are loved.
