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 negative and living in the past – that is, we’re leaning how to negate past tense sentences.
We’re getting fancy under level three. I wore a shirt! But rest assured it’s all flannel from the waist down.
Now we’re at alert level three, you can buy books again! If you didn’t get the chance to buy one before lockdown, now you can, and you can find all of my Māori Made Easy posts here and start from the beginning if you want! Buy Māori Made Easy here and at all good bookstores.
© This reading of Māori Made Easy was made possible with the generous support of Penguin Random House New Zealand.
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.
