Talofa / Talofa lava is of course a formal hello.

Malo / Malo lava is also hello (I think more cordial).

Ua a mai oe? How are you? Though I've seen it as "Oa mai oe" I don't think that is actually correct.

"Manuia, fa'afetai," simply translates "Fine, thank you."

I don't think there is a "You're welcome."

Aiga: Family.

For a boy, uso, of course, means brother, and for a girl, it means sister. A boy's sister is tuafafine and a girl's brother is tuagane.

Mother: TiNA.
Father: TaMA.

Boy: Tama. Girl: Teine. Kid: Tamaitiiti. Kids: Tamaiti.

"e iloa oe, ou te fia a'oa'o fo'i si gagana o atunu'u le pasefika! Ae o a'u o lE o se Fiti haha"
That's what u said translated in Samoan. I've applied 'E' to 'lE' to signify the dragging of the syllable 'E'. In Samoan, this is what we call 'fa'amamafa'. Post more and I'll attempt to translate for u

Talofa -

Any specific reason why you want to learn Samoan?

I mean I see no reason why you shouldn't. Just curious as to why it is you're interested.

Also - in regards to your previous posts about knowing just a few words, mind if I ask what those few words are?

Ma lo'u fa'aaloalo :)(with all due respect)
I'll be more than happy to help you out with any questions you have, of course.
