A Basic Course In Tetum - the Language of East Timor

With thanks to Dr Geoffrey Hull for his definitive books on the Tetum language and to Katerina at Timor Aid for her brief introductory course on Tetum

This is a very basic course in Tetum, just designed as a brief introduction and a base for future learning.
It should give you enough to handle basic communications and show the East Timorese people that you care enough to make an attempt at learning their language.
