Fakaalofa lahi atu!
My name is Brian, I am 13 years old, and I live in the United States.
I have an enthusiasm for a variety languages, including Esperanto, Chinese, Lingua Franca Nova, Volapük, Irish Gaelic, Turkish and many more.
Some of my other interest include practicing shorthand, playing cello, swimming, being obsessive about healthy vegetarian food and cooking, computers and programming, music and reading. 😉
I stumbled upon the Niuean language recently while surfing the web one day, and it immediately caught my eye. The island of Niue seemed like a charming place with friendly people and a fascinating language.
I have decided to endeavor to learn this Polynesian language as a unique addition to my studies. In order to increase my vocabulary and knowledge of its grammar, I created this blog to help me and any others out there (if any ;)) who wish to learn Niuean. I have no previous knowledge whatsoever with this language or any language similar to Niuean for that matter. However, I wish to learn it slowly and steadily and increase my knowledge of diverse types of languages.
My method with this blog will be to record and memorize around five new words/phrases every day, as well as some grammar points. Additionally, when I come across new websites, books and other resources, I will inform everyone about them in this weblog.
Hopefully this blog will come to your liking, and I encourage anyone who’s interested to comment or email me.
