KIRIBATI 1.0: I MIGHT BE CRAZY. OFFICIALLY

When in 2017 I started learning Marshallese, most of my relatives and friends were … a little surprised, to put it mildly. Because who on earth would want to learn Marshallese??? Well, I would! What is more, I would also want to learn Hawaiian and – wait for it – Kiribati; which, I guess, officially makes me a crazy person. … More KIRIBATI 1.0: I MIGHT BE CRAZY. OFFICIALLY

Some time ago – when it was raining heavily, and I had nothing to do (that doesn’t happen very often) – I decided to see if there were any (interesting) Marshallese YouTube channels. We all watch YouTube nowadays – if you’re saying you don’t, you are probably lying – so I thought that it would be fun and educating to start following people who might help me improve my Marshallese skills. … More MARSHALLESE 24.0: LEARNING FROM YOUTUBE
