She’s not a teacher or a fluent speaker – she just wants to practise te reo Māori with you! Join Leonie Hayden as she works through the first six weeks of Scotty Morrison’s Māori Made Easy, thanks to Penguin Random House NZ.
We’re still practising dual pronouns. Ka kata tāua, ka tangi tāua. We’ll laugh, we’ll cry. It’s a journey.
Stepping things up today, we’re practising a combination of tense markers, dual pronouns and adding objects. Prepare thine big boy pants, we’re stepping into the big leagues.

As well as doing this with me, you can sign up for Toro Mai and learn with real teachers! They’re free online te reo Māori and tikanga Māori lessons created by Stacey and Scotty Morrison. Plus check out more online resources here, and classes you can look into once normal life resumes.
The Spinoff Weekly compiles the best stories of the week – an essential guide to modern life in New Zealand, emailed out on Monday evenings.
