English term or phrase: greetings
greeting in a business letter from Canada to Sri Lanka - what language do they speak in Sri Lanka?
Suzanne Warner
Vanakkam
Explanation:
In Tamil, the word would be 'vanakkam'. I have no idea of Sinhala. but you can surely use english in Colombo. However, using a French greeting or a Spanmish may not make sense to them.

Best wishes
