May Lee Allen from Haka Works will reconnect us with Māori culture and language in a Te Reo Māori language masterclass
About this Event
Increase your confidence in using Te Reo Māori in every day social and business interactions.
Te Reo Māori has found its way into the hearts and minds of New Zealanders with people of all backgrounds now choosing to engage with learning this beautiful language. As Te Reo becomes more widely spoken and valued in different settings, it is increasingly important and enjoyable to be able to participate and share in Maori language and culture.
In this session you will learn some Māori language fundamentals to develop your capability and confidence in using Te Reo Māori language including:
- Introducing yourself
You’ll also engage with some key Māori cultural concepts around language, learning and life to help you easily use more Te Reo in your day to day life.
The NZ Government aims for 1 million New Zealanders to be able to speak basic Te Reo Māori by 2040 and with online learning there is no reason for off-shore kiwis to be excluded from this. Join your fellow New Zealand business women in taking a step towards this together.
