Fakaalofa lahi atu –
I haven’t had much time to use my new Learning Niuean: The Combined Edition book lately; however, I really like it and am happy to start up my studies.
It seems to be fairly organized with conversations, vocabulary and grammar points in each lesson. There is a simple, concise pronunciation guide in the beginning with a preface on the language and its history. I like how there are pictures that show the culture of the island as well.
So, I hope that anyone learning Niuean seriously would consider purchasing this book. The only drawback is that I was charged US$37 dollars, when the price was NZ$37, which is about US$21. However, it was worth it.
Talk to you soon!

I again apologize for not posting for awhile.
I want to inform everyone about a book that I just purchased:
Learning Niuean: Combined Edition buy Aiao Kolima (sp?) from South Pacific Books, ltd. online store.
I haven’t received yet; however, I await its arrival!
I am disappointed, though, because it was priced at NZ$37.00, which is around US$21.00; so, I thought the currency would be exchanged. However, I was charged US$37.00, which disappoints me. Now I don’t have any money left on my gift card to buy Teach Yourself Norwegian, haha. 😉
I will tell you about it as soon as it comes (if it even comes~!)
I hope it is good as it is the only book that I have found for seriously learning Niuean.
