Tukuna mai nga korero mou

Panuitia nga korero pono a etahi atu mo te ako ki te korero me te kawe i te reo Maori - tukuna ranei o ake korero pono me o ake whakaaro.

 

Mo te Ropu

Ka hono atu koe ki te Ropu Reo Maori, ka tutaki koe ki etahi atu hoa hei awhina i a koe ki te whakapakari i o pukenga reo Maori.

Ka penei nga tikanga:

Ka rehita koe, ka whakaritea to reanga mohio ki te reo Maori. He tikanga nui tenei e pai ai te haere o te ropu, ka mutu, ka tukuna atu e matou tetahi patene whetui ki a koe hei tohu i te reanga o to tunga i roto i te ropu.

About the Club

When you join the Maori Language Club you’ll be able to find other people to help you practise your Maori language skills.

Here’s how it works:

You can identify your level of Maori language ability when you sign up. This is one of the key ways the club works because we’ll then send you an attractive lapel button to identify your level of club membership.

E wha nga momo reanga me nga patene e rite ana.

There are four levels and buttons to match:

Light Paua.

Light Paua

Te hunga timata - Beginners

Encourages all button wearers to speak to them.
Dark Paua.

Dark Paua

Te hunga korero o waenganui - Intermediate speakers

Can understand, and is still learning. Can use reo Maori with each other and with light Paua button holders.
Pounamu.

Pounamu

Te hunga korero - Fluent speakers

Ka taea e te tangata te ata whai wahi atu ki nga whakawhitiwhitinga whakaaro ahua uaua. Ka kimi i nga huarahi hei whakarongo, hei korero, hei panui hoki i te reo.
Inanga pounamu.

Pounamu Inanga

Te hunga i tipu ake i roto i te reo me te hunga matatau. - Native and highly fluent speakers

Tuturu, kei konei te toitutanga o te reo, huri atu, huri mai, e toitu ana te reo. Ka awhina i nga tauira i te reo.


Ina ka tutaki koe ki etahi hoa o te ropu e mau ana i a ratou o ratou patene, ka taea e koe te whakamohio atu i a koe ano ki a ratou, ki te korero Maori ano hoki ki a ratou. Ko te tumanako nui, ka awhina tetahi ki tetahi ki te whakanui i o ratou ake mataraunga, pukenga hoki i roto i te reo.

Na reira- kaua e whakama! Haere mai ki hono atu ki te Ropu Reo Maori, ki te tutaki ano hoki ki etahi atu hoa tautoko, hoa korero Maori hei reo korero noa.

Tera tetahi atu painga nui, ka taea hoki e koe te hono atu ki to matou huinga ipurangi me o hoa o te ropu ki te whakawhitiwhiti whakaaro mo nga tumomo kaupapa korero katoa.

Hono atu ki te Ropu Reo Maori i runga i te ipurangi.

Tikina mai te puka whakamarama i te Ropu me te puka rehita hei tuhituhinga mou, hei tuhituhinga hoki ma tetahi hoa [PDF 270KB]

Tukuna mai o korero, o akoranga ranei ki etahi atu hoa o te Ropu, ki era atu tangata ka tupono atu ki te paetukutuku Korero Maori.

When you see other club members wearing their buttons you’ll be able to identify yourself and use reo Maori with them. The idea is that everyone can help each other develop their knowledge and skill in using the language.

So don’t be shy! Join the Maori Language Club and meet more people who support and use reo Maori in everyday life.

And as a bonus you’ll also be able to access our online forum and discuss all sorts of issues with other club members.
