Here’s a photo of a mystery city. Do you know where it is and which languages are spoken there?
Been there !
Hmm.. in doubt now whether or not to spoil it for other people…
For the record, the people who speak ‘the other language’ call themselves “tangata whenua” ;-)
Thank you, Juliette!
To give a further hint: the “tangata whenua” call the others “pakeha”. They are also known as “Kiwis”.
i think it’s somethin in Maori
but anyway the tower here looks similar to one we have here in Kuwait!! hehehe
based on the “kiwi” clue, i have to guess wellington.
Kiwi is a nickname for the people of New Zealand, that us Australians use all the time! I’m going to say Auckland and the languages spoken there are English and Maori.
….and is that the Sky Tower in the background?
It is indeed Auckland, the largest city in New Zealand, and that is the Sky Tower, the highest tower in the Southern Hemisphere, in the background.
Languages spoken in Auckland include English, Maori, Samoan, Tongan, Niuean, Hindi, Mandarin and Cantonese. Samoan is in fact the second most commonly spoken language there after English, according to this site.
