Tetum is the native tongue of the inhabitants of Timor. It's actually one of two official languages spoken there. If you were planning on visiting anytime soon, it's definitely good to learn a few useful phrases.

Bem Vindo!

How are you?

Diak ka lae?

Where's the bathroom?

Sintina iha ne'ebe?

I love coffee!

Haʼu hadomi kafé 


We're sure Channing Tatum would approve.
