\"Hej\" is pronounced pretty much like the English phrase \"Hey\".

\"Goddag\" is pronounced like \"God-day\", and means literally \"Good day\", which is the common phrase in use among Swedish speakers.

agree  EKM: Goddag is a bit formal and old-fashioned. "Hej" (pronounced like "hey") works for most situations.
