Important: please note that this course is running ONLINE. You will be sent a link to join the class prior to the class starting. At this stage we are hoping that this class will move back to the school site in August (term three). Thank you for your support of the programme and we can assure you the same work is covered both online, on a digital platform with your tutor, as is covered in a physical classroom.
An introductory course in Tongan language. This conversation-based course is suitable for absolute beginners. Learn the basics of vocabulary, pronunciation and discover the Tongan alphabet with our native-speaking tutor.
Students will leave this fun class equipped with a basic range of speaking, reading and writing skills to support the confidence and ability to converse in everyday situations.
Leave the course with a fascinating insight into Tongan society and an awareness of the registers of words used by commoners, by chiefs and even those words fit only for King Tupou VI!
Please note: All courses need a minimum number to go ahead. If your course does not have enough enrolments, we regret that we will have to cancel and will let you know either by email or text. Courses are usually cancelled, when necessary, 1-2 working days prior to the scheduled start date.
