Okinawa Culture - Language
Let's sing Uchinaaguchi!

Lesson 1

Chuu uganabira is the way that we say "Hello" in Uchinaaguchi

Chuu uganabira is the way that we say "Hello" in Uchinaaguchi

Before you eat your food, say "Kwatchii sabira"

When you're done it's "Kwatchii sabitan"

And please say "please", "unigee sabira"

And "thank you", "nifee deebiru".

Lesson 2

Lesson 2 goes over a very basic way to introduce yourself in Uchinaaguchi (name and where you're from). For the purpose of recording, the names Shun and Nancy are used in this song.

Lesson 3

This volume goes over a few phrases in their respective informal forms. These forms can be used when speaking with people younger than yourself, with friends, or with close family members.

Lesson 4

Count from 1 to 10 in Uchinaaguchi!
