Tō tātou reo - Tō tātou wero / Our reo - Our challenge

Kia ora koutou katoa

Are you up for a 40 day challenge?  I need to improve my reo Māori.  Do you?  

I plan to share a phrase a day and encourage you to join me.  The theme for Challenge 1 is Greetings. 

Please check prior posts when adding to avoid repetition.  

If you are unsure about the correctness of your phrase don't worry - we'll call in the experts to add their critique! Let's create another dynamic learning space on the VLN!  

The BeL National Māori Team will be posting regular blog posts to support the teaching and learning of Te Reo me ōna Tikanga Māori.  Please feel free to contact either myself Moana Timoko on moana.timoko@core-ed.org or Janelle Riki on janelle.riki@core-ed.org for further support.

  • Tamara Bell 

    Ko wai ka tū ki te mura o te ahi?  

    Who will be first in the hot seat/to face the fire?  A great one to say when you are looking for volunteers... in a staff meeting, classroom, for a game etc. 

    Arohamai, Ko Ngāti Tūreti tōku iwi! Laughing 

    He pai rawa atu tēnei kaupapa, ngā mihi nui ki a koe Mo me te whānau whānui mō te tautoko ki au i te reo ataahua. Kāore he painga i te whānau Māori o CORE, kei te piki haere te ora o te reo, arohanui ki a koutou katoa!

    Ngā mihi o te ata ki a koe Moana.

    Came across your blog by chance, and have already added a few greetings to our classroom vocab.   Kei runga noa atua koe!

  • Moana Timoko

    Ko te rā tuangahuru tēnei.  Is there another way to say this is the tenth day?  

    This is how I've heard it said.  

    Ngā mihi ki a koutou e ngā kaituhituhi o Tō tātou reo, Tō tātou wero.  

    E mara! This is a form of address to a friend (Northern territory - Ngāpuhi reo) 

  • Beth Dixon

    Karekau pea he tino take kia whakatikaina tāu i tuhi ai  engari ...

    E/Kai ngā mātua kua haramai ki te tautoko i tō tātau huinga/noho tahitanga tēnā rā koutou/tātau katoa!

    E Moana, karekau he painga i a koe mō te whakamātautau i tāu e ako ana!  Tau kē!

  • Tahu Paki 

    E hika! Just like Mo but from the Coast! 

  • Moana Timoko

    Woohoo whakarongo mai e hoa mā!

  • Moana Timoko

    Ko tēnei te mihi atu ki a Jane Armstong.  Kia ora koe mō tō awhina!!!

    Now I'm thinking friends that this was an easy process to follow to add my audio recording using PodOmatic . Would be good learning for you all to set up an account, and then add your own audio recording.  

    1. Register
    2. Scroll to the welcome notice on the right (middle of the page) - click on start here
    3. Work through the steps
    4. I used the microphone on PodOmatic
    5. Work through the steps - stick with the defaults until you've had a good tutu
    6. Go back to your home page
    7. Click on your recording - you'll have to find it (Just look for it - it'll be highlighted)
    8. Find "EMBED"
    9. Copy the EMBED code (Change any details here if you want re: playing automatically)
    10. Click into the comment box on this blog - add your written post
    11. Click on HTML - paste your EMBED code into the space
    12. Wait a few seconds and post!!!

    If it doesn't work let me know and I'll try and work through the process with you....PHOOOOOO!!!!!!

  • Moana Timoko

    Working through the previous process allows you to click and listen to the audio recording immediately without have to click, click through to the file...and then download.  

    Wink Wow - I'm feeling rather happy - E tino hari ana ahau!

  • Moana Timoko

    Koa koa koa

    Ka hari taku ngākau

    Koa koa koa

    @ Tessa ... it's written 'tino pai' not 'teno pai' ... just a typo eh? Laughing

    @ Ihipera ... kai runga noa atu koe (not 'atua' koe) ... another typo pea, lol! (meaning ... good on you)

    E hika, e Tahu!  For a minute then I thought you had written 'wāna nei' but I soon understood!  Auē, my kuia eyes i nē!  LOL!

  • Moana Timoko

    Ko te rā tekau ma tahi tēnei.

    Hena(Ngāpuhi speak for tēnā), tukuna mai! “Hena tukuna mai” or just “Hena”  Or generically “Karawhiua mai”

    A way of saying, "Bring it on!"

  • Justin Roberts
