Bradley and I are working together to create some video lessons on how to speak Chuukese. I have found very little information on the language on line so we decided to create our own. I did find a link to a Chuukese dictionary, but Bradley didn't recognize all the words. Because of the islands different dialects, it seems that each island's language has slightly evolved from the others.
In this video Bradley gives us the word for "Hello" and the phrase for "How are you?"
I would like to thank @NZWaikato for the idea for this activity. The inspiration came from his class blog last year Tamaki Today. You can find his work on his new class blog Room 8 @Melville Intermediate School
If you know someone that speaks Chuukese, we would very much like to set up a conversation between our students and them. Please leave me a comment or send an email.
