Samoan, one of the oldest forms of Polynesian languages, is the first language for most of the Samoa Islands’ population of about 246,000 people, and is the third most widely spoken language in New Zealand.
The traditional culture of Samoa is a communal way of life based on Fa’a Samoa, where most activities are done together. Fa’a Samoa is a guideline for every Samoan on how to lead their lives by celebrating and embracing traditional values, their culture and environment. You will see this reflected in every aspect of their lives, from their traditions and friendly hospitality to their warm, welcoming language.
Samoan tradition holds that the Samoan Islands were the original homeland of the entire Polynesian race. Learn this language and learn the ethos of Fa’a Samoa.
