introduction - about this course


󱤪 index 󱤪 󱤖 next

hi! welcome to my toki pona course!

i first made this course to teach my girlfriend toki pona, because i disagree with other courses on many small and big things and i didn't want to have to correct the courses while fae was going through them.

however, i put a lot of work into this course, so i figured i may as well also put it out online for anyone else to use!

i tried my best to do a good compromise between my personal style and the style of pu, and i think it should be a good starting point for anyone interested in learning toki pona. ultimately, it's up to you to form your own style after you're done with this course.


this course will not make you fluent. no course out there will! toki pona may be minimalist, but it's still a complex language to learn. people spend several years before they even start considering themselves fluent, and you will probably be no different.

however, this course will give you a good understanding of all the important fundamentals of toki pona, so you can then go on to explore the language on your own!

i think that using the language actively is very important while learning, and i highly recommend joining toki pona communities where you can practice speaking the language and ask questions.

it's okay to make mistakes - everyone does!
