O LE VAIASO O LUMANA'I NEI O LE VAIASO O LE GAGANA SAMOA
Samoa Language Week is ready for its 11th year as part of the 2020 Pacific Language Weeks programme and will run from Sunday 24 May to Saturday 30 May.
Samoa Language Week will be officially launched online by Minister Aupito William Sio, with the online event hosted on the Gagana Samoa i Aotearoa Facebook page which can be accessed here. I encourage everyone to join in the celebration of Gagana Samoa as it begins its second decade with the Pacific Language Weeks programme.
The Samoa Language Week theme is:
‘Tapena sou ōso mo lau malaga’
‘Prepare yourself a gift for your travels’
There will be plenty of online opportunities to participate in, during Samoa Language Week, so check out the https://www.facebook.com/gaganasamoaiaotearoa/ page. Additional information and helpful resources can be downloaded at the Ministry for Pacific Peoples https://www.mpp.govt.nz/…/pacific-lang…/samoa-language-week/.
In support of Samoa Language Week, please give the language a go by including simple words or phrases such as Talofa lava (welcome), Fa’afetai lava (thank you), Tofa Soifua (goodbye/safe travels), in your conversations and emails and add the Samoa Language Week banner, below, to your email signature.
