Level 1 Te Reo Māori for Teachers

Untitled design (66).png

This professionally designed course is crafted by educators to assist their peers in effectively integrating te reo Māori into classroom settings. We emphasise an engaging, comprehensive, and educationally sound approach to language delivery.

Participants will explore the foundational aspects of Te Reo Māori, including its essential linguistic components, along with an introduction to tikanga (traditional protocols) and mātauranga Māori (indigenous knowledge systems).

Throughout the course, attendees will gain insights into crucial sentence structures and relevant vocabulary (kupu), tailored for contextual use in educational environments.

Structured for convenience, the course offers weekly sessions via Zoom, supported by Google Classroom. Class sizes are limited to 20 participants to ensure a focused and interactive setting. Join us for an enriching journey in both cultural and linguistic education.

Ngā Whāinga Paetae: Learning Objectives

A range of topics are covered throughout this course with each week featuring a mix of both reo Māori structures and components of tikanga and mātauranga Māori (cultural knowledge).


Each lesson is enriched with a range of classroom resources and activities, aimed at creating a collaborative and interactive learning experience, enhancing both teacher and student involvement with the language and its culture.

Some of these topics include:

  • The importance of pronunciation

  • Descriptive sentences

  • Pepeha

  • Pōwhiri

  • Verbal sentences

  • Instructional phrases


Each lesson is unique and we use a range of digital tools to accentuate delivery and learning.


Lessons are fun and interactive and most of all RELEVANT to educators wanting to experience the beauty that is te reo Māori.​
