  1. Hi Quasia,

    Nice work! Good translation. I wonder how you would say "Where is the toilet?" I think that should be in the activity too. I know how to say it in Korean and Maori, but no other languages. Keep up the great work!


  2. Kia ora Quasia,

    Great translation! Often when you travel to a new country it can be really tricky to find your way around if you don't speak the language. But I find that if you know a few key phrases like these ones here, then it helps a lot!

    Language barriers can be hard to overcome sometimes, but if you're willing to give a new language a go then locals are usually pretty understanding and willing to help you out if you're struggling a little bit :-)

    Can you speak more than one language? I'm always so impressed when people can speak different languages, it must be difficult! I'd love to learn to speak a new language, especially Maori. If you could learn to speak any language at all, which would you choose?

    Great blogging Quasia :-)


  3. Hi Quasia,

    What a surprise to see you commenting! Nonetheless, great post! These translations can be helpful for those wanting to start a new language!

    Keep it up!

    1. Thanks Iisa, Glad to hear your still active on your blog! And thanks for the words of encouragement!
