Tongan Language Week

LI: to learn about the Tongan culture and traditions and honour the Tongan Language Week.

This week was Tongan Language week, where people share their knowledge about their home country (Tonga). This was also an opportunity for people who were not Tongan, to learn more about the different foods, people, and other knowledge that was passed down by their ancestors. As a group we translated simple words and phrases that we could use. We also wrote the Tongan words for the numbers up to 10.

I enjoyed doing this activity because this activity gave me the opportunnity to educate myself on Tongan traditions and culture. Something I liked about this activity was how there were Tongans who helped me pronounce the different words in the correct way.
