Polynesian Languages IV (and a special congratulations!)

Hello everyone! It’s been a while since I made and posted a video, so here is the final installment of the Polynesian Languages! We’ll go back to our ten sample words and look at why they are spelled the way they are.

On another note, I want to wish a BIG CONGRATULATIONS to Gokul Venkatachalam and Vanya Shivashankar for winning the 2015 Scripps National Spelling Bee this past Thursday! What an exciting and dramatic finale; I am ecstatic that both of them got to win and I think this was the best way it could possibly end! Also a very big congrats to Dev, Cole, and every other speller who competed last week – they truly stole our hearts and demonstrated true sportsmanship and spirit 🙂

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 I

Happy Saturday to all! This week we will begin our journey into the exotic language of Chinese! Chinese words are not too common at spelling bees, and they also contain very simple and easy-to-remember spelling rules. In this first video, we will learn about the history and background of the language (it certainly is a very old language) and about its interaction with English. Then we’ll take a look at ten sample words from Chinese. Enjoy!

Sanskrit/Hindi IV

Happy Saturday everyone! Today is the final installment of the Sanskrit and Hindi videos, and we will go back and review our ten sample words to see if we can apply all the rules we learned. Enjoy!

I have created my own fundraiser for Water.org because I believe we can help solve this challenge. I hope you agree. Please give whatever amount you can to support my efforts. For every $25 that I raise, Water.org can give someone access to safe water for life. Together, we can change lives. To check out my fundraiser online, please click here. I would REALLY appreciate any help in this endeavor!

Thank you!

Sanskrit/Hindi I

Namaste everyone! Hope everyone is having a fantastic weekend so far! This week we will begin our journey into one of the most ancient languages the world has to offer, Sanskrit. We will do Hindi alongside Sanskrit because Hindi derives from Sanskrit so the rules are very similar. The only difference is that Hindi is colloquial (spoken today) whereas Sanskrit isn’t actually spoken in conversations. I speak Hindi, so I am happy to be sharing the rules of this beautiful language with everyone. Please enjoy!

Thank you!

Japanese I

Hello everyone! Hope everyone has had a restful and wonderful summer! I know many of you will go back to school this month…I have already started school this week. This week we will start a beautiful new language – Japanese! Japanese is a very symmetric, easy-to-follow language with consistent spelling rules and patterns. That’s why we love it! In this video, we will get an introduction to Japanese and take a look at ten sample words.
