Update

Hello everyone! I hope you all are having a nice end to the school year. I just wanted to let everyone know that as I am very busy with AP exams and final exams this time of year, I am unable to make and share a video this week. I will try to post the next video this week or the week after. Thank you for your understanding!

Polynesian Languages III

Hi everyone! Happy May! This week we will finish up our rules for Polynesian Languages. The third installment of this set of videos wraps up the vowel sounds which we started last week and takes a look at some consonant rules. Again, you will find that the consonant rules for Hawaiian, Samoan, Tahitian, and Maori are rather simple and phonetic — which is a good thing! Enjoy!

Polynesian Languages I

Hello everyone and HAPPY EASTER!!! This week we will jump into another great group of languages — the Polynesian languages! The Polynesian languages are a collective group of languages that originate from the islands of Polynesia; geographically these places are located in the Pacific near Australia, New Zealand, and Hawaii. Four major Polynesian languages that we will cover are Samoan, Tahitian, Maori, and Hawaiian. One thing to note — Polynesian languages are very similar to each other and have rather basic and simple spelling rules (think of words like “aloha” or “luau”). There are plenty of vowels and vowel sounds in these languages, but they usually stick to their own rules. In this video we will get an introduction of these beautiful languages and take a look at ten sample words. Enjoy!

Chinese IV

Hello everyone! Happy Saturday and beginning of spring! In this video, we will wrap up our discussion about Chinese by revisiting the ten sample words we saw in the first video. Again, Chinese is a pretty simple language without too many intricate spelling rules. Enjoy!

Chinese III

Happy Saturday everyone! In the third installment of Chinese, we will finish up our Chinese vowels (looking at “O” and U”) and will also cover consonant sounds in Chinese. There aren’t many consonant rules as most sounds are spelled how they would sound in normal English. Enjoy!

Chinese II

Hi everyone! Hope everyone is doing well! This week we will delve right into the rules of Chinese, starting with the vowels. In this video, we will cover the vowel sounds relating to “a”, “e”, and “i.” Chinese vowels tend to be simple and consistent, so that is a big plus for us! Enjoy!
