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 four weeks of Scotty Morrison’s Māori Made Easy, thanks to Penguin Random House NZ.
We’re still in action land – this time asking the second most important question in te ao Māori: “Up to?”
What are you doing, what is she doing, what are they doing. No point in learning the answers (see yesterday’s lesson) if you don’t know the question!
