Samoan Language Resources  

 

As we continue to embark on our strategy to revitalise Pacific Languages, we have created a Samoan Language Resources page. 

The Samoan language videos and images are a great tool for schools and communities wanting to celebrate Samoan Language week, which in 2022 falls between the 29th May to the 4th June. The content has been designed to strengthen basic Samoan language abilities so you can become familiar with basic Samoan words, Samoan phrases, numbers and much more. 

At Pacific Learners, we have an experienced group of frontline educators who are passionate about seeing our Pacific children reach their full potential.
