Samoan words for shapes and colours 

In this Samoan language video, you will be able to translate ten different colours and ten different shapes from English into the beautiful Samoan language.

Gain an appreciation for the Samoan culture and try to incorporate Samoan vocabulary into your everyday conversations, so instead of saying ‘the grass is green’ say ‘the grass is lanu meamata’ , or instead of saying ‘Jesus died on the cross’ say ‘Jesus died on the satauro’. 

This is a great beginners resource for those wanting to learn this beautiful language.
