  1. Kia ora Maris-Stella,

    Awesome job with your translations, well done! I am super impressed that you managed to translate each of those sayings into all of the languages, that is a really good effort.

    Can you speak any different languages Maris-Stella? I can't, but I really wish I could! It would be cool to know how to translate sayings and sentences like these ones into an entirely different language. I think that if I could learn any language at all, I would learn Maori. What about you? If you could learn any language at all, what would it be?

    Naku noa,
