'Family' in other languages...

Hello linguaphiles! I've been a member of this community for a while, but haven't lurked around here too much; this is also my first post to the community. My name is Starr, and I'm a 19 year old college student majoring in Japanese. My native language is English, and I know a bit of Spanish (I used to be quite good as I mostly hung around one friend whose family only spoke Spanish. I haven't used it in years though, and so forgot a lot of it). I've got a long list of langauges I'd like to eventually learn, starting with Mandarin this fall, though I wonder how far I'll get with that, heh.

Anyhow, enough rambling about that. I was talking to my aunt the other day and she asked for me to send her how to write 'family' in Japanese, as she wanted to use it for a project of hers. As we talked more about it, she said she would like to get the word in as many languages as she could, and I immediately thought of this community.

So, aside from English, Spanish, and Japanese, I haven't got a clue. If you know how to say family in languages other than these, could you please let me know what language it is, how it's written in that language, and also how to pronounce it (though that last one is just for my own curiosity)?
