« Back to Samoan
Samoan Language (Gagana Samoa) is spoken by nearly half a million people worldwide, including 85 thousand people in New Zealand, making it the third most widely spoken language in New Zealand (after English and te reo Māori). Whether students are learning Samoan to strengthen their identity as Samoan, to communicate with family members, for career enhancement or another reason, this subject will provide them with an opportunity to build on prior learning and to develop problem-solving, risk-taking and communication skills.
This course further extends the ability to read, write, speak and listen in Samoan. A range of topics are explored through the eyes of two Samoan families, one living in New Zealand and the other in Samoa.
NCEA Level 1 Samoan course or equivalent.
