Tongan words for things you see at school

At Pacific Learners Education, we understand the stress for not only our children, but for the parents when our children head off to school for the first time.

To prepare our children for school, we have put together 15 Tongan words for things our children will see when they get to school. It is important that our children keep speaking their Pacific language when they are at school, at home and when they are with their friends.

Our Pacific language is an important part of our identity.

For those that teach our Pacific children, this video will be useful especially if our young Tongan children have English as a second language.

For more Tongan language videos visit our Tongan language resource page.
