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.
