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!

Velkomin(n) í klúbb erlendra tungumála
Explanation:
Welcome = Velkominn (explains itself)
to = til (but we use í (in) when we talk about clubs. Pronounced as "e" in he)
club = klúbb (this is in the accusative, the nominative being klúbbur. ú is pronounced as u in put)
foreign = erlendra (plural, the singular is "erlendur". There is no vowel in English comparable to u, but the closest one is schwa.
languages = tungumála (again plural, the singular is tungumál. Pronounciation is as follows: the first u is pronounced u: as in moon, but the second u is more like schwa. g is similar to "ng" in long. á is pronounced as "ow" in how. l is pronounced as the "l" in foul.

Hope this helps.

Velkomin(n) depends on the sex and whether it is plural or singular. If you are talking to a female you use only one \"n\" and the same applies to both sexes in the plural. Singular male needs two n\'s.
