Pacific languages

We have courses available in Samoan, Tongan and Cook Islands Māori.

  • If you’re Pasifika – reconnect with your identity and culture through your language. Improve your ability to communicate with people in your family, community and workplace.
  • If you work with people from the Pacific nations and want to develop your communication skills – discover how learning a language and its cultural practices can connect you with people at your work and in our community.

“In order to understand one’s culture, you must understand their language”
