Vosa Vaka-Viti, our first language is part of our personal, social and cultural identity. The progress in acquiring English is closely linked to the level of one's first language. The first language is essential and a powerful tool in developing literacy. When you read regularly to children in their home language, you give them a strong language foundation that makes all learning easier.
