Learning Niuean

Fili Rex, Bree's nana came to teach us some Niuean words. First she taught us greetings.

She taught us these greetings:

Fakalofa (lahi) atu Love (big) giving

Ko e higoa hauku ko ? The (name) is ?
Nofo au i Mangere Bridge
(Live me)

She taught us to count from 1-10:

taha, ua, tolu, fa, lima, ono, fitu, valu, hiva, hogofulu

She taught us days of the week:

Aho Gofua (Monday)
Aho Ua (Tuesday)
Aho Lolu (Wednesday)
Aho Tuloto (Thursday)
Aho Falaile (Friday)
Aho Faiumu (Saturday)
Aho Tapu (Sunday)

We played a matching game with these words:

fano (go) - hau (come)
kai (food) - inu (a drink, to drink)
fifine (woman) - taane (man)
mohe (sleep) - ala (wake up)
fale (house indoors) - fafo (wake)
aoga (school) - Tapu (church)
tahi (sea) - fonua (land)

Tahi fakaue Mrs Rex for teaching us these words.
