dobre dojdovte


Explanation:
if you are welcoming someone say for ex. at your home you would use "dobre dojdovte" (formal), dobredoshle (informal, correct spelling dobredosle) with mark on top of s to make sound for sh., and finally if refering to a group of friends you could also say dobre ni dojdovte. Literally translated it would mean welcome to us here.

If someone says thank you and you would like to say welcome use the following:
nema na shto (sto) correct spelling w/ mark on top of s to make sh sound., or povelete, or most commonly used "molam".
