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 working our way through action in the present tense. Kei te this, kei te that.
Kei te whiti te rā! The sun is shining today in Tāmaki Makaurau. Kei te harikoa au. I’m quite happy about that. If you’re following along, send us a photo of your learning spot, your green book, or just something in your bubble that makes you happy. email@example.com / @sharkpatu on Twitter / @leonie_hayden on Instagram.
