A little language primer! It’s a new day and we’re brushing up on our Chamorro reading skills. Enunciations can be tricky, but if you keep practicing, you’ll get it to sound just right. Taken straight from the first pages of our book, “Outsmarting Manet,” here’s a quick snippet for you to practice with. Remember, practice makes perfect! Keep it up Guam!
