This Samoan language manual is designed for use by both teachers and students. The manual outlines and explains each lesson for the teacher and provides a source of reference for the learner. The lessons are intended for use in the classroom under the direction of the teacher. Total immersion in Samoan and exclusion of English are important features of the course. Each lesson contains a list of topics to be taught, the method to be used, and the necessary materials. The lessons are organized into eight units covering nominatives, numbers, pronouns, verb tenses, adjectives and adverbs, miscellaneous concepts, conjunctions and prepositions, idioms, and dialogues and stories. An appendix provides a Samoan grammar, an English-Samoan glossary, and a Samoan-English glossary.

With many Samoan people living in other countries, the total number of speakers worldwide is estimated at 370,000.
