Episode eight of this year’s AUT Pacific Language Week video series has been released.
To acknowledge Niue Language Week being celebrated in Aotearoa from 17 October to 23 October, the video is narrated in Niuean (with English subtitles). It takes a look at the long-term effects that could be experienced by people who have suffered from stroke.
