Te Reo Māori Level 1

Te Reo Māori Level 1

                                            The best time to join our language classes is at the beginning of each term.

KIA ORA – TE REO MĀORI (Level 1 Beginners)

An introduction to Māori Language and customs.  A look at Māori values and beliefs with Māori music.  This course has a strong focus on speaking and understanding spoken Te Reo Māori.  It is aimed at providing beginners with knowledge of basic greetings to more complex sentences. The class will also provide an opportunity for the more advanced to support the beginners and practice and increase their skill in speaking, listening and understanding. Waiata (songs), tikanga (culture), karakia (prayers) and mihi (introductions) will be covered together with oral/aural and reading/writing skills.

Students have to choose the night and venue they wish to enrol in.

For instance, if you choose the Tuesday evening class, it means that for the next 8 weeks, you attend the Tuesday class only.  It does not mean that you attend Tuesday and Wednesday and Thursday.

To help keep the cost of this course down we receive Government Funding who require proof of residency/citizenship status.  When you enrol you may be asked to provide a CERTIFIED copy of your Identity Documentation – click here for a full list of accepted IDocs.

We may, regretfully, have to cancel courses if we do not receive enough enrolments, in which case you will get a full refund.
We may choose to close a course if there is a high level of non-attendance or withdrawals, in which case a proportional refund may be made.

Cancellation/postponement/suspension due to extreme weather, Tutor illness or unforeseen circumstances

Wherever possible, we will offer replacement or extended sessions to make up for sessions cancelled/postponed/suspended due to extreme weather, tutor illness or other unforeseen reason.
