This youtube clip is a great example of how we Sāmoans and Tongans learn back in the Islands. No matter where we are at Church or at School, singing and dancing is part of our DNA, instilled in us at a young age. Now most of us would be living far away from the Kingdom leading a western lifestyle but this is how we should approach our learning of the language. Making it fun. Boys should not be passively learning. And everyone is involved.  Sing-a-long now!

Samoan verse –
Ua ou sau te vivi’i le ali’i
Ae pe fa’apefea oe
Ua ou sau te vivi’i le ali’i
Ae pe fa’apefea oe
Ua ou sau te vivi’i le ali’i
Ae pe fa’apefea oe

Alelu, Alelu, Aleluia !!

English verse –
I don’t know what you came to do
But I came to praise The Lord
I don’t know what you came to do
But I came to praise The Lord
I don’t know what you came to do
But I came to praise The Lord

Hallelu, Hallelu, Hallelujah !!
