Paper Description

Edit Paper Description Content
This is an introductory Māori language paper where students will be introduced to conversational Māori using simple everyday language. MAORI101 has a particular focus on pronunciation, greetings, farewells and forms of language associated with certain cultural functions, such as pepeha (expressions) and whakapapa (lineage). 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, and secondly, by communicating using basic sentence structure patterns in both written and spoken form, and applying this knowledge to everyday communication.
