Course structure

With an emphasis on pronunciation of significant names, places and spaces this course is designed to have you actively participate in speaking Te Reo. You’ll gain confidence and familiarise yourself with basic mihi (greetings), waiaita (song), karakia (blessings) and general language. You will be guided by both Kaikōrero Māori (native fluent speakers) and those who have undergone formal qualifications as teachers of Te Reo.
