English term or phrase: foreign language club
How do you say:

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!

vos invitamus in conventum linguarum
Explanation:
There are several options. Here's the explanation of my suggestion:

vos invitamus in conventum linguarum: "We invite you to the language club."

VOS INVITAMUS: "we invite you (plural)" [there's no one-word equivalent of "welcome" in Latin]

IN CONVENTUM: "into the assembly/club" [other words might do, too: SODALITATEM, COLLEGIUM/CONLEGIUM, CONVIVIUM...]

LINGUARUM: "of languages" [or you could lengthen it to LINGUARUM ALIENARUM to hammer on "foreign" languages]

--Loquamur
Ph. D. in ancient Greek, college professor of Greek, Latin, German, French, and Spanish
