Tamaki Int.. - Learn to Speak Maori Lesson 2

This is lesson two in our Learn to Speak Maori Series. In this lesson Mikeala and Anna-May go through some words for you to practise. We've written the words below so that you can practise them, then Mikeala will say them in Maori followed by Anna-May in English. This was written, produced and filmed (in one take!) by the students themselves!
The words are
  • Tangata Whenua - People of the Land
  • Whare - house
  • Whare nui - meeting house
  • Whare kai - kitchen
  • Marae - Church
  • Patu - weapon, like a club that could be made from Greenstone
  • Mana - pride
  • korero - talk or conversation
  • kohangareo - kindergarten
  • kura kaupapa - Maori School
this series will be continuing! Stay tuned!
