Here are the major concepts a Samoan tutor can cover:
One of the main differences between Samoan and English is that Samoan distinguishes between informal and formal speech. The informal speech is known as colloquial Samoan and is used when talking with friends, family, and those who have a similar social rank. The formal speech is used in ceremonies and also used when speaking with strangers, people with a higher rank, and elders. As this is much different than English, Samoan tutoring may be helpful for students who want to learn more about the culture and when each of the types should be used.
The Samoan alphabet is made up of 14 letters and it also uses an additional three letters that are only used in loan words. There are five vowels and nine consonants. Additionally, there are two diacritics. The way some of the letters are used change based on whether someone is speaking formal or informal Samoan. Samoan tutoring can be helpful in terms of learning the alphabet and learning Samoan vocabulary.
One of the areas where Samoan tutoring may be the most helpful is in learning vocabulary. It can be difficult to memorize vocabulary words when you are just trying to learn them from a book or website. There are so many words to learn that it can seem overwhelming. But working with a tutor who can as a guide and resource can help alleviate some of those feelings. Additionally, a private tutor can work with you apply the vocabulary words in conversation. This can be helpful because it can help you stay engaged while also gaining experience with actually speaking in the language. If you have an interest in studying Samoan, contact Varsity Tutors so we can help you connect with someone who is eager to help you learn.
