simple but useful guide to te reo
NZ Māori Tourism and Araraurangi / Air New Zealand have teamed up for a new project to help Māori language learners spread their wings.
Today they launch a language learning app, designed for learning 'te reo' on the go. Called 'Kia Rere' it is a pocket-sized guide to mihimihi and whakatauaki (greetings and proverbs) to use on your journeys.
Launched in time for Wiki o te reo Māori (Māori Language Week), the app is intended for beginners and is a first step into the language.
Henare Johnson, Cultural Development Manager for Air New Zealand, said it was aimed at giving confidence and vocabulary that can actually be used in your travels.
