What language do they speak in Fiji?
Fiji uses three official languages - Fijian, English and a variation of Hindi which is quite different to the one spoken in India. Native Fijians generally use Fijian as their first language and English as their second so communication in English is rarely a problem.
We always recommend diving into the culture and language of our destinations so here are a few basic Fijian words and phrases to try:
Fijian - English
Bula (pronounced ‘boo-lah’), Hello (the most common greeting)
Moce (pronounced ‘mo-thay’), Goodbye
Io (pronounced ‘ee-oh’), Yes
Sega (pronounced ‘senga’), No
Kerekere (pronounced ‘Kerre-kerre’), Please
Vinaka (pronounced ‘Vee-naka’), Thank you
Tulou (pronounced ‘Too-low’), Excuse me
