Fiji Guide

The most trusted source on Fiji

Hi all, does anyone know where we can find the language books "Say It In Fijian" and Say It In Hindi"? (Author is A . J. Schutz) We've tried Devia, Paper Power, the bookshop in between these two, and Prouds in Nadi town, various bookshops and Jacks in Lautoka, and places in Denerau with no luck. Would love to get our hands on a copy of these - can anyone help? Thanks!

Hi, I will find out for you if there is any available.  When would you like the book/s by?

Al Schutz has just published a brand new version of his Say it in Fijian book.  It's fantastic because it's an ebook and there's a whole multimedia component. A native Fijian speaker pronounces words, etc that you can play.  

Here's the link: https://itunes.apple.com/us/book/say-it-in-fijian/id1038278983?mt=11

Here's the press release:

Say it in Fijian
 

The revised and expanded edition of Say It in Fijian presents Albert J. Schütz's popular introduction to the Fijian language for the first time in an interactive, media-rich
e-book format.

Designed for use on most tablets, readers, and smart phones, the e-book includes an extensive selection of audio recordings that make it easy to hear and say simple Fijian words and phrases. For example, as Schütz explains in the book, "the simplest way to begin using Fijian is with the greetings, and most common is:

Nī sā bula. 

Bula means literally ‘health’ or ‘life’.  means ‘you plural’, but it is also a respectful way of referring to just one person. The singular form, sā bula, or bula, can be used among close friends, rather in the same way as tu and du are in French and German."

A masterfully crafted introduction to the Fijian language, the e-book edition of Schütz's Say It in Fijian allows beginning students and casual visitors alike to quickly acquire a basic familiarity with many common and practical Fijian expressions. In addition, the e-book includes a collection of never before seen historical photographs depicting life and culture of Fiji in the 1960s.


Hi Serah, thank you so much for offering to help. I've just seen the post from another member saying that there is an ebook available so I will look into that. Thanks again for being willing to help! :)
