Pacific languages have a very important place in New Zealand not only for Pacific people but also for people who work professionally with Pacific peoples and who want to improve their communication with their clients.
This programme in Gagana Samoa (the Samoan language) will develop your skills in speaking, listening, reading and writing, and will also put this language in its cultural context.
For Samoan people who were raised in New Zealand, this is a chance to increase fluency in your language and learn more about your culture.
This programme is aimed at students who have an intermediate understanding of the Samoan language and who wish to develop these skills further.
