Te Hiringa o Te Reo is a language resource designed specifically for those who are interested in learning basic Māori language but have limited opportunities to attend regular language classes. This language resource pack consists of a series of seven compact discs and a workbook that participants can work through at their own pace. Portability allows the participant to listen to the compact disc any time and any place. This can be repeated as many times as you like as you follow the dialogue in the workbook.
A team of first language speakers have put this resource pack together with the sole purpose of providing a basic understanding of te reo Māori. In addition to a beginner's language resource, the programme also includes a selection of well known waiata and karakia that participants may wish to use.
From this basic understanding of te reo Māori, participants can then decide to enrol on a part or full-time language programme.
