The first Samoan word - Talofa!
« on: September 21, 2009, 12:05:14 PM »
The first word to speak on meeting someone for the first time is Talofa - hello.

Often the answer back is talofa lava!     Hello back with emphasis!

It is the formal greeting, you do not hear it much outside of a new or formal greeting.
