English term or phrase: We are glad you are here and want you to feel welcome
We have new Iranian neighbors. I have figured out how to wish them "Happy New Year" (N0-Rooz) and "Wishing you 100 more happy new years" (Sad Saal Be In Saal-Ha) I would like to be able to say this phrase to really make them feel more at ease and welcome in their new country. They have indicated they are homesick and miss family members. Whatever help would be greatly appreciated. (phonetically would be really helpful) Thanking You all in advance....

khosh amadin
Explanation:
This means "welcome!". The 'Kh' at the beginning of 'Khosh' is a little guttural, almost sounds like an 'h'. The first 'a' in 'amadin' is a longer 'a', closer to the 'a' of 'far' than the 'a' of 'father' but the second one is closer to the 'a' of 'father' and the 'i' is like the 'i' in 'marine'. Know it's not much but hope it helps. My reference is personal experience.
