L1 Te Reo Māori

Te Reo Māori is the key to understanding the Māori world. 

This course aims to develop students’ abilities to express their thoughts in te reo Māori with accuracy, fluency, cultural integrity and gain an understanding of language revitalisation.

Students will be able to:

  • uphold tikanga in Māori settings through karakia and mihimihi
  • use te reo Māori in a range of everyday conversations
  • respond and give a mihi in te reo Māori to show appreciation
  • explain Māori principles of the language (A / O categories)
  • research and share their thinking about historic events that have impacted the Māori language

Students will also learn more about tikanga Māori, as they become culturally confident and competent to participate in and contribute to Māori language and culture revitalisation within their communities.

Assessment is a combination of both internally and externally assessed standards.
