samoan language week is launched
The New Zealand National Commission for UNESCO is a proud supporter of Le Vaiaso o le Gagana Sāmoa−Samoan Language Week: 27 May – 2 June 2012. Partner organisation the New Zealand Human Rights Commission notes that 'Vaiaso o le Gagana Sāmoa encourages people to learn and use Samoan in their day-to-day lives, highlights the importance of respecting others and builds strong relationships amongst New Zealand’s diverse communities and using their own language.' You can support Samoan Language Week by visiting the Samoan Language Week Facebook page and trying out some phrases at home.
