Anthony Faitaua's discussion posts

    Great topic for discussion Manu.

    If I can put my Pasifika lens on why it may look different from my perspective, how blended e-learning can best assist Māori and Pasifika learners, I would like to share my thoughts on this matter. Te Reo / first language is the most important component to any culture. 

    Currently what I am seeing here is on the left hand is Māori, Pasifika learner and on the the right hand is e-learning (tools, devices etc). People are so fixated by the e-capability of schools, they are missing the point.. People have to bear in mind it’s all about the Māori, Pasifika learners or all priority learners not just the tools and devices. I want to stress the phrase. “,in order to teach you I need to know you”. 

    We need to look at how we blend both hands together so our fanau don't lose their cultural identity and they are currently moving with the digital world simultanously, not starting behind the start line. 

    I believe e-learning is a positive shift in the right direction, it's a matter of how tools and technologies can be used effectively to sustain our cultural identities with our whānau in schools.

    Three blind mice in Tongan. 
    This is a very popular song for Tongan kids and it is sung to the same tune.

    It has nothing to do with the farmers wife who cut of their tails with a carving knife. This song is about the mice and a priest. See all those mice! Where are they running to? They are running after the Priest to eat his bread until each and every crumb is finished.

    Inline images 1

    So you want to count in Tongan! The basic level of counting in Tongan is easier then you think. All you have to do is learn the numbers 0-10 then you can count from 1-99. Follow these simple rules.

    Counting 1-99 in Tongan

    • numbers 0-9 noa, taha, ua, tolu, fā, nima, ono, fitu, valu, hiva
    • the number for 10 is hongofulu (hoh-ngoh-foo-loo)
    • the number for 100 is teau (teh-ah-oo)
    • every other number is literally the words 0-9 combined: twenty becomes two zero – ua noa
    • three exceptions to the rule 22, 55 and 99 words shortened to uo ua, nime nima, hive hiva

    Example: How do you say the number …. in Tongan?

    1. 19 (nineteen) – taha hiva
    2. 44 (fourty four) – fā fā
    3. 99 (ninety nine) – hive hiva
    4. 87 (eighty seven) – valu fitu

    Test: Can you saying the following numbers in Tongan

    1. 15 (fifthteen)
    2. 33 (thirtythree)
    3. 50 (fifty)
    4. 11 (eleven)
