Tamaki Int. - Learn to Speak Tongan 8

This lesson is presented by Sosaia and Josh. In it they will teach you four commands in Tongan that a teacher could say to students in the classroom to settle them down. The key phrases that you need to be listening for in the video are:
  • To'o lo olugan - stand up
  • Ta'o tu ki lalo - sit down
  • Toku mou talanoa - stop talking
  • Ai mou ngaue - do you work
This was written by the students themselves and filmed at Tamaki Intermediate no Thursday 25th September 2008.

Thanks for a lesson in Tongan. The language seems quite different from Maori. Can you help me? if ai mou ngaue means do your work how would you say I am doing my work? Anyway nice blog if you want make a comment about cyberbullies here http://education-realitycheck.blogspot.com/2008/08/what-do-you-think-about-cyberbullying.html . No pressure.
