We toured the elementary school in Navotua village, and the kids sang a few songs for us. Everyone begins learning English in the first grade, so everyone speaks at least some English. At home, you speak either Fijian or Hindi, if you're are descended from one of the Indians shipped to Fiji by the British in the 1800s to work on the sugar cane plantations. After elementary school in the village, children are sent to boarding schools for the higher grades.
