I am a mother of a wonderful young boy adopted from the Sidama region of Ethiopia. I have created this page and these videos to help him, myself and others learn some basic words and phrases in Sidaamuafo. I am not a linguist and did my best to make the videos and white boards as correct as possible. If you notice any errors, please point them out and I will do my best to make corrections. I owe all of this to the wonderful group of boys and staff at Common River in Aleta Wondo. Without their enthusiasm and generosity, none of these videos would have been possible. We plan to visit Ethiopia again in 2015 and make more videos so stay tuned! Galateemohe!
