A Samoan Language Lesson for the Grandchildren

We are just learning some of the language and thought it would be fun for all of you to teach a couple of words to the grandchildren.  Here's a first go:

Hello ------- TALOFA ----(pronounced Tah-lo-fah) -- the 'o' is long
     add LAVA to the end and it means "Hello very much"

Goodbye ------- TOFA ---- (pronounced Toh-fah)

Thank You ------- FA'AFETAI ---- (pronounced Fa-ah-feh-tie)
     pronounce each syllable just as it is.
