Samoan words for things you see at school

Going to school for the first time can be a stressful for our pacific children, especially if English is a second language. In this video, we give you 17 things that our children will see at school, and translate them for you.

You will learn words like ‘Api’ which means ‘Book’ or ‘Faiaoga’ which means ‘Teacher’ or you can say to your friends, lets go to the ‘Malae taʻal’ which means ‘Playground’.

Remember, our pacific language is part of our identity, so it is important to continue to use our pacific language at school, at home and when we are with our friends.

For more Samoan language videos you can view ‘Samoan words for celebrating Christmas‘, orlearning ‘Common Samoan Words‘.
