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 Din Tei” by O-Zone. It’s a good tune!

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!
