Paper Description

Edit Paper Description Content
This is an introductory paper and students will be introduced to conversational Māori using simple everyday language but with a particular focus on pronunciation, greetings, farewells and forms of language associated with certain cultural functions, such as mihimihi / whakapapa. The paper’s overall objective is for students to develop a basic understanding and use of the Māori language. First, by developing aural confidence in listening to basic Māori language, secondly, by communicating using basic sentence structure patterns both in written and spoken form, by developing an awareness of cultural conventions and appling this knowledge to everyday communication.
