Te Wiki o te Reo Māori

Monday 13/09/2021

Does anyone really need reminding that te reo Māori is both a taonga and a national language of Aotearoa? September 13-19 is indeed te wiki o te reo Māori, so if you or your friends and whānau haven’t committed to improving your reo yet, this is a great time to get started!

Māori language courses are in hot demand across the country, and many can be done online. Te Wānanga o Aotearoa offers a number of courses, but if study isn’t the best option for you your local library has great resources for all ages and stages, and you can always check out Māori TV for a wonderful range of comedy, drama, documentaries and kids’ programmes for both beginners, fluent speakers, and everyone in between.

Visit Te Taura Whiri i te Reo Māori/ the Māori Language Commission for a range of resources and activities and remember: the only way to improve your skills is through practice, so don’t be shy…

 Kaua e Whakamā! Kia Kaha!
