Common Kiribati Words

Learning common Kiribati words is a great way to start you on your Kiribati Language journey. 

At Pacific Learners, we are passionate about revitalising Pacific Language, so we are very happy to bring you the first video in our series of Kiribati Language videos. We have also made it easy for you to access all our Kiribati video content by creating a Kiribati Language Resource Page.

In this video you will learn words like ‘Eang’ which mean ‘Yes’ or ‘Tiaki’ which means ‘No’. You can even learn words like ‘ko rabwa’ which means ‘Thankyou’ and even impress you parents or children by saying ‘Matu raoi’ which means ‘goodnight’. 

In this video, you will also learn how to count to 10 in Kiribati.
