Te Reo Māori for Beginners

Online Meeting

Level 1

Our Level 2 Te Reo Māori course builds on foundational te reo Māori that has been learnt in our previous Level 1 Te Reo Māori course or other introductory te reo Māori courses. We use a range of interactive and engaging digital tools to encourage you to use the reo you have acquired in a variety of situations including the home, work and in social settings.
The material and resources that are provided are practical and relevant to everyday situations and you will also additional materials to encourage the use of te reo Māori amongst your family, friends, and colleagues. Content is interactive and engaging so no need to learn through just books and paper worksheets! Each course is looked after by one of 3 trained (and registered) teachers with in-depth experience in adult teaching and learning.
