English term or phrase: foreign language club
Welcome to the foreign language club!

I would preferably want to know how the whole sentence is said.

*I am trying to start a foreign language club at my school and think it would be a good idea to have this sentence translated into as many languages.. Thanks!

mo'aDON hasaFOT hazaROT מועדון השפות הזרות
Explanation:
The above is "foreign language club." The whole sentence is "brooKHEEM haba'EEM l'mo'aDON hasaFOT hazaROT." In Hebrew it looks like this: ברוכים הבאים למועדון השפות הזרות.
brooKHEEM haba'EEM = welcome, in the plural form
l'mo'aDON = to the club
hasaFOT = the languages
hazaROT = strange

As you can see, Hebrew sentence structure is quite different from English.

Good luck with your club.

John is quite right - in this context hazaROT means foreign, and not strange. As it happens, the word hazaROT also means strange....but definitely not in this context. I guess my mind was wandering by the time I got to that part of my answer. Sorry if I misled you. Moadon hasafot hazarot does mean foreign language club, and not strange language club.
