TE REO MĀORI COURSES:

Te REO MĀORI COURSES COMING SOON!

Te Reo Māori is an Eastern Polynesian language spoken by Māori, the indigenous population of Aotearoa New Zealand. Te Reo Māori (the Māori language) is closely related to Cook Islands Māori, Tuamotuan, and Tahitian. After a century of colonial indifference demonstrated by European migrants to Aotearoa New Zealand, Te Reo Māori finally gained recognition as one of New Zealand’s official languages in 1987. Recent Māori language revitalisation efforts, and pride in speaking Te Reo, have increased spoken Māori considerably over the last few decades. This resurgence is now being supported and promoted by various government agencies, non-profit organisations and associations and commercial businesses alike. This course is jointly sponsored by EarthDiverse and Go Eco.

Please note that this is an on-line course only. A visit to a local marae is included at the end of this course.

Study Te Reo Māori with EarthDiverse!

MĀORI LANGUAGE CLASSES COMING SOON.

Please note that this course has been temporarily postponed.

Go Eco and EarthDiverse are proud to present our newest language programme, Introductory Te Reo Māori 101, Part 1. This course begins with learning some basic conversation, vocabulary and introductory grammar. Learning about Māori culture is most definitely a part of our study. This is Part 1 of a three-part course over 3 school terms specifically designed for new Te Reo learners. Our language and culture courses focus on teaching and learning only, as we do not expect you to study outside of class nor do we assign homework. Come and spend 12 class hours per Term (eight 1.5 hour weekly classes) learning Te Reo and Māori culture, and have some fun too! All of our language classes are designed for busy people.

A visit to a local marae is included at the end of this course in Term 4 for those able to attend.

When completing one 8-week course, each cohort can begin advancing to the next course in the series.

  • Māori 101: Introductory Te Reo Māori, Part 1 (coming soon). 
  • Māori 102: Introductory Te Reo Māori, Part 2
  • Māori 103: Introductory Te Reo Māori, Part 3
  • We’ll add continuing courses as our programme develops.

 

LOCATION: This course is offered on-line via Zoom, or through video recordings of our live-streamed sessions posted 1-2 days after each class.

DISTANCE-LEARNING OPTIONS: Our Te Reo Māori live-streamed courses are available via free Zoom software, or those unable to attend the date and time of the actual class sessions can watch the live-recorded video sessions on their computers, laptops, tablets or mobile devices and study at their own pace. These recorded sessions will be available soon after each class finishes so that you may watch the recorded video via any web-browser at your leisure. After you complete registration, we will provide details on how to access your classes before your course begins.
