Update!

Hello everyone! Just wanted to give everyone a quick update —  I’ve been out of town for nearly a month and have therefore not been able to post videos regularly. I will restart posting videos when I return home next week. Thank you for your understanding and patience. I hope everyone is having a wonderful summer 🙂

Romanian I

Happy Saturday everyone! This week we will have something a little unusual: we will start and finish a whole new language in this video. It’s Romanian! The reason is that there are very few words in English that have been borrowed from Romanian, so we will just look at those words in this video instead of going through complex rules (because if we know all the words, then there is no need for any rules, right?!) Also, by the way, the song that I mentioned in this video is “Dragostea… Read more Romanian I

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!
